(From the publisher):
Kathyanne Bazemore and her brother Ganus were two attractive young mulattoes, trying hard to live decently in the small Southern town of Estherville. But cruel, irresponsible white men and women pursued them relentlessly—with threats, tricks, beatings and attempts at seduction—until finally the bedeviled pair were trapped by the evil they had tried so desperately to sidestep.
Their story, frank and searing, is one of Erskine Caldwell's strongest pictures of people caught in the no-man's land between two races in the Deep South.
