The variety and fevor of comment that greeted Anne Scott's "The Southern Lady" in 1970 can now be seen as a foreshadowing for its lasting impact. In her wide-ranging new Afterword to this edition of a work not infrequently called a classic, the noted historian describes the way it came to be written, asks what she would do differently now, and suggests areas for further exploration. -- From publisher's description.
