Freshwater RoadBook - 2006 | 1st trade pbk ed.
It is the summer of 1964, and University of Michigan sophomore Celeste Tyree travels to Mississippi to volunteer her efforts in Freedom Summer. She ends up helping voters register in the small town of Pineyville, a place best known for a notorious lynching that occurred only a few years earlier. Through her work, Celeste finds inner strength as she helps lift the veil of oppression and learns valuable lessons about race, social change and violence. Sensitively written and refreshingly honest, Freshwater Road is one of the best civil rights novels available.
