The story of Jimmy CarterÕs boyhood in Plains, Ga.
Carter isnÕt a natural storyteller, so this book reads like a washload of memories, the significant and interesting jumbled with the insignificant. He focuses on the years during the Depression and World War II, when racial segregation was unquestioned. He recalls with fondness his pre-modern boyhood, while looking critically at the racial attitudes that underlay it.
