Jim Crow Meets Miss Maggie's Will

This looks like a book worth reading, Inherit The Land: Jim Crow Meets Miss Maggie's Will by Gene Stowe. The setting is North Carolina in the early twentieth century. Two really wealthy white sisters wrote wills leaving their estate to a black man, Bob Ross, and his daughter.

Hi,
I wrote Inherit the Land and came across your post while surfing. Let me know if you have any questions or want any more information about the book. One chapter is about a murder trial in Georgia going on the same week as the trial over the will in North Carolina.
Cheers,
