Reviews

"An American classic."--The New Yorker
"A love story of a man's passion for his home, his family, and...for his fellow man...Will stay in the mind long after the last page is read."--United Press International
"More than just an engaging memoir, this book is first-rate social history, a portrait of a subculture of America...a genetic road map of the making of a president."--Ray Jenkins, Baltimore Sun
"Captivating."--Jesse Birnbaum, Time
"A lovely and haunting piece of work...conveys with quiet passion...its author's love for the place in which he grew up and where, he says, he expects to rest for eternity."--Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World
