"A wonderful book. . . . Stories like this need to get around sooner than later. They are what will save this world."
..............-Pete Seeger

"A Stronger Kinship is a proof of the wealth of new insight into American history to be found through attention to small towns and rural places, where settlers sought to realize beliefs and ideals that sometimes put them far in advance of society as a whole. These are precious narratives, instructive and heartening."
..............-Marilynne Robinson (author of Gilead, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize)

"Anna-Lisa Cox has excavated a jewel from our past. A Stronger Kinship is as refreshing as a cool breeze, and ever so revealing. Itís a must read for anyone who has ever tangled with race, Americaís dilemma. It will give you hope."
..............-Alex Kotlowitz (Author of There Are No Children Here and The Other Side of the River)
