This hardcover book by a Boaz native is, unfortunately, far inferior to his later softcover book titled Boaz that is also in this library. This book is all moralizing and judgement whereas Boaz is full of colorful characters and well-rendered events both from area history and from Wilkerson’s personal history. I’m going to recommend keeping this simply because it’s from a local poet, but it really has very little poetic value and there’s barely any trace of evidence that he lived in this county. I was certainly a disappointment for me having read his other book first.
