I'd Rather Live in Buxton

I'd Rather Live in Buxton By Karen Shadd-Evelyn
1996 | 152 Pages | ISBN: 0889242429 | PDF | 6 MB


When current and former residents of Buxton gather for Homecoming, they share memories of fishing for smelt, practising for the North Buxton Maple Leaf Band, building the local museums; of Sunday School picnics and grandma's pumpkin pies. Buston residents also share more painful memories. Memories of prejudice, of learning that in the world outside Buxton, black stars would have to shine doubly bright to be seen. In this memoir, Karen Shadd-Evelyn celebrates the heritage of Buxton, combining prose, poetry, and personal photographs in a shimmering evocation of life in a very special community.
