Three lives for Mississippi by William Bradford Huie( Book )

43 editions published between 1955 and 2000 in 6 languages and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Bradford Huie was sent to this seething community by the New York Herald Tribune to cover the breaking story. Probing for answers and conducting interviews, he wrote this documentary account in the heat of the dangerous and dramatic moment, not in the safe zone of retrospection. This is not a political or sociological study, a collection of articles or a diary, but a journalist's fact-filled story of people that fate brought together in a tragic confrontation. Huie tells the history of each young man and studies the personalities of the killers. He reveals not only the harrowing events in this heinous case but also the prejudice of ordinary citizens who allowed murder to serve as their defense of prejudice. He helps us know the young martyrs closely and introduces us to their killers and to the hatred and suspicion that led inexorably to murder. This edition includes Huie's report on the trial three years later. Nineteen local men were charged. Seven were found guilty of conspiracy but none of murder
Mud on the stars : a novel by William Bradford Huie( )

22 editions published between 1942 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on his own boyhood experiences, Huie (1910-1986) gives the reader a detailed account of rural life and race relations in the Tennessee Valley in the early years of this century, including a vivid picture of college life at The University of Alabama during the Great Depression. Through a careful weaving of characters and events, fact and fiction, Huie's novel captures the tumultuous period before World War II in the urban South, a time of social unrest and testing of new political ideologies. The book's publication in 1942 was a huge critical and financial success and not only brought Huie the acclaim his talent warranted but also focused an approving national spotlight on the prolific Alabama writer."--BOOK JACKET
