      As a young student, John Crocker embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, spending eight months in the Gombe forest working with Jane Goodall. He followed families of wild chimpanzees from sunrise to sunset and learned the fundamental behavioral traits of these chimps as they raised their offspring. “Following Fifi” raises thought-provoking questions about the evolution of human behavior, the importance of patience and strong family bonds, and provides a greater understanding of what it means to be human.

      Though impoverished whites were never subjected to the daily violence and degrading humiliations of racial slavery, they did suffer tangible socio-economic consequences as a result of living in a slave society. ​ Historian Keri​ Leigh Merritt examines how these ‘masterless’ men and women threatened the existing Southern hierarchy and ultimately helped push Southern slaveholders toward secession and civil war.

      The new book by Julie Hedgepeth Williams traces an extraordinary tale concerning the founding of Southern literature. “Three Not-So-Ordinary Joes” focuses on the curious intersection of the lives of Joseph Addison, Joseph Addison (J.A.) Turner, and Joel Chandler Harris, and the circumstances leading to the publication of Chandler Harris’s Uncle Remus stories, which achieved for him and his work national literary status.
