Freedom Fighters and Hell Raisers: A Gallery of Memorable Southerners

Hal Crowther ’66. Blair, October 2018.  Available on Amazon. This collection of essays highlights the best and the brightest of the recently departed generation in the South. These essays commemorate the passing of iconic Southern figures such as John Hope Franklin, Doc Watson, Judy Bonds, and James Dickey. Crowther has known most of the figures he profiles and has lived in their particular landscape for decades; he has some stories to tell, and he does so with a particular appreciation for his subjects’ accomplishments, their surroundings, and  their particular brand of notoriousness.
