“Old Bricks” of Booneville, Mississippi By S. G. Patrick Hardy
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Because bricks often give structure to a town as a whole, they also encase the memories of the people, events, and social pressures that shaped a particular place and time. This book is a history of... More > Booneville, Mississippi, from 1907 to 1965. In this unique narrative, personal interviews are intertwined with historical documentation to take you from Main Street (by way of the back alleys) to cotton fields, jails, and train stations.
