Tales From the San'tone River Bottom: A Cultural History: Origins (Vol. 1)

Historians generally tell only about history. Louise O'Connor has chosen to use a new approach, letting the people themselves tell their own story, in their own words through the new approach of oral history. Using transcriptions of those interviewed, she lets them tell their own tales. In using such an approach, she is giving the world a fifty-yard-line seat to the real drama which cannot be duplicated anywhere else.
