Becoming Southern: The Evolution of a Way of Life, Warren County and Vicksburg, Mississippi, 1770-1860

xix, 258 pp, grey cloth covered boards w/red lettering on the spine, glossy grey-red dj w/black-and-white illustration on the front panel and white lettering on front & spine, white rear panel on dj w/black text. The book looks at a "typical" Southern community and traces its long process of economic, social, and cultural evolution. The author shows the transformation of a loosely knit Western community of pioneer homesteaders into a distinctly Southern society. This region was first setlted by farmers and herders and by the turn of the nineteenth century, the wealthiest residents began to acquire slaves and to plant cotton, hastening the demise of the pioneer economy.
