    PDF/EPUB Stanley Nelson Ø Ø Devils Walking ePUB Õ devils book, walking book, Devils Walking PDF/EPUBI was inspired to read this book by Greg Iles' Natchez Burning It is definitely true that truth is sadder than fiction This novel gives a clear account of tragic maddening murders happening in an indifferent society not so removed geographically or temporarily from where I live today Although all of the disparate facts can get a little confusing at times the theme is absolutely clear while making so much progress we have so long to go in treating black lives as if they matter An important read especially for those in and from the Miss Lou area

    PDF/EPUB Stanley Nelson Ø Ø Devils Walking ePUB Õ devils book, walking book, Devils Walking PDF/EPUBLove Greg Iles? Wonder where he gets his Natchez stories? This books is the real life version of a Greg Iles novel Written by editor of Concordia LA newspaper editor the true story of the horrors in Louisiana and Southwest Mississippi during the 60s Civil Rights activity in those areas of the country This was where I grew up so there was a personal interest It also was part of my continued interest in this part of my interest in the civil rights movement Highly recommend but not for those who dislike violence This is not a gory book by any means but it's hard to believe that devils truly walked the earth and they were so close to me

    PDF/EPUB Stanley Nelson Ø Ø Devils Walking ePUB Õ devils book, walking book, Devils Walking PDF/EPUBIt took some excellent research to write this nonfictional account of Klan crimes of the sixties in the Ferriday Louisiana and the Natchez Mississippi area written by journalist Stanley Nelson Greg Isles based his fictional trilogy Natchez burning on his account as reported by the Concordia Sentinel The reality is hair raising and I could not read it as uickly as I would a fictional novel I grew up in Ferriday and remember as a child does the horrific crime that killed Frank Morris and left a cold case that Stanley Nelson's research helped to reopen Although no one can bring back the past the author does a fair job as only a writer can of rendering justice to the families concerned
