Description
Harrison County was the largest slave-owning county in Texas, so when China Galland returned to research her family history there, it should not have surprised her to learn of unmarked cemeteries for slaves. "My daddy never let anybody plow this end of the field," a local matron told a startled Galland during a visit to her antebellum mansion. "The slaves are buried there." Galland's subsequent effort to help restore and reconsecrate just one of these cemeteries unearths two versions of history—one black, one white—and a quintessential American story of prejudice, land theft, and environmental destruction, with racial wounds that are still slow to heal.

"This is the riveting story of a remarkable effort to resurrect the dead, to uncover a long-neglected burial ground and give the anonymous folk interred there the voice denied them as slaves. Read on; I guarantee that once you start, you will not stop, and when you are done, you will have discovered the healing power of Love Cemetery."—Bill Moyers
