Summary / Annotation
An honest look by a descendent of Gen. Robert E. Lee submitted by sueij on July 27, 2019, 5:19pm A short book by a descendant and namesake of General Robert E. Lee that takes an honest look at the strengths and the challenges facing the South as a result of its history, this book was outstanding. Lee takes on hard issue after hard issue (language, the Confederate flag, statues and memorials, his family’s relationship with the household help, and more) while holding tight to the virtues of his native land (faith, community, hospitality, natural beauty). He is able to speak to the benefits that accrued to him as a White man, as a native son, and as the descendant of a regional hero, and take a hard and honest look at what that means to those who do not share those traits. This book has a lot to say, no matter where you live, but especially if you are White.
