Hidden from vacationers by the road's hedge and the hulks of old cars and blown-out tires, Janisse Ray's childhood was spent in a Georgia junkyard along U.S. Highway 1. In Ecology of a Cracker Childhood she tells her story and how a childhood spent in rural isolated, steeped in religious fundamentalism lead to a passion to save the almost vanished longleaf pine ecosystem that once blanketed the South. Her language is colloquial, elegiac, and informative all at once. Through her words, Ray redeems two Souths.
"Suffused with the same history-haunted sense of loss that imprints so much of the South and its literature. What sets Ecology of a Cracker Childhood apart is the ambitious and arresting mission implied in its title. . . . Heartfelt and refreshing." - The New York Times Book Review.
