Claiborne County, Mississippi: The Promised Land, Katy McCaleb
Headley, 1976, 1996. Soft cover, spiral bound, 8-1/2 x 11, 542 pages,
bibliography, index. The top three cover portions, where the spirals
go through them, have torn, but I think I can repair these from the
back with tape. The book does have a small gift inscription, but -
other than that - is in near new condition with no markings of any
kind, loose or dogeared pages. The title makes this sound like a book
of fiction; far from it! This book is just filled with records and
history! Contents include:
