    Kathryn Tucker Windham was a pioneering female journalist in the South. By the close of the Civil Rights era, her hometown newspaper in Selma, Alabama, had been taken over by corporate owners, and she sensed it was time to move on. She launched a new career as part social worker, part roving documentarian, photographing and writing about the people and places that fascinated her. She was one of Alabama’s best known citizens, widely honored, yet she still kept a busy schedule of public appearances: She continued to write, photograph, and tell stories. Putting her worldly house in order, the nine autobiographical essays in this volume helped tidy up the facts and folklore in Windham’s professional attic.
