Cane River

by Lalita Tademy

Based on the author’s own search of her family’s past, Cane River is an epic novel based on the lives of four generations of African-American women. Beginning with Tademy’s great-great-great-great-grandmother, Elisabeth, this is a saga that sweeps from the early days of slavery through the Civil War and into a pre-Civil Rights South–a unique and moving slice of America’s past that will resonate with readers for years to come. Photos throughout.
