General Note: Title from eBook information screen..
Summary, etc.: Set on a Louisiana sugarcane plantation in the 1970s, A Gathering of Old Men is a powerful depiction of racial tensions arising over the death of a Cajun farmer at the hands of a black man. "Poignant, powerful, earthy...a novel of Southern racial confrontation in which a group of elderly black men band together against whites who seek vengeance for the murder of one of their own."--Booklist"A fine novel...there is a denouement that will shock and move readers as much as it does the characters."--Philadelphia Inquirer
