All God's Dangers


Product Description
Product Details


"Somewhere along the line, people stopped talking about it. Friends of mine who talk about nothing except Southern literature have barely heard of the book. I pounced on it after I discovered that Richard Howorth, the well-read owner of Square Books, the independent bookstore in Oxford, Miss., utters its title aloud every time a customer asks the question, 'What one book would you say best explains the South?' I wish I could say that, this early spring, I read All God's Dangers in one sitting. It's not that kind of book. It's a meandering thing; its pleasures are intense but cumulative. This book rolls. But it is superb--both serious history and a serious pleasure, a story that reads as if Huddie Ledbetter spoke it while W. E. B. Du Bois took dictation. That it's been largely forgotten is bad for it, but worse for us. . . . All God's Dangers . . . deserves a place in the front rank of American autobiographies. There are many reasons, in 2014, to attend to Ned Cobb's [Nate Shaw's] story."--Dwight Garner "New York Times "
"Astonishing . . . Nate Shaw was a formidable bearer of memories. . . . Miraculously, this man's wrenching tale sings of life's pleasures: honest work, the rhythm of the seasons, the love of relatives and friends, the stubborn persistence of hope when it should have vanished . . . All God's Dangers is most valuable for its picture of pure courage."--Paul Grey "Time "
