    " This short book examines the very real anti-integration efforts of the Mississippi government in the 1950's and 1960's.It should be read in conjunction with 'The Help' - preferably before. It was a dangerous world down there! "

    " A lot of information in a compact and easy to read book. There is a fascinating amount of information. Although it was enjoyable, I am unsure if it would make a good Rosie. There is not one underlying story. "

    " This is an informative quick read if you are interested in the civil rights movement, especially the events in Mississippi and how those events influenced the nation, and vice versa. "

    " A informative look at the secret spy network in my home state. Interesting reading, but perhaps a bit dry. "
