"We need to have this book around again to remind us what it took to be what Katharine Lumpkin was in her time. Her book is no longer fond prophecy and faint hope; it is a record of the route we had to travel."
—Louis D. Rubin Jr.
Katharine Du Pre Lumpkin was born into a prominent Georgia family and raised in a southern society intent on preserving the economic and racial status quo. But as a young woman working with the poor in the sand hills of South Carolina, she began to question what she had been taught. In The Making of a Southerner, Lumpkin re-creates the South of her childhood and records the journey she took from her early instruction as a daughter of the "Lost Cause" to the liberal viewpoints she championed as an adult.
