RISING ROAD

     I just finished reading "Rising Road" by Sharon Davis.  Very good.  It is a nice glimpse of the bigotry that existed in the early part of the past century.  It is easily forgotten how much anti-Catholic sentiment existed at the time.  The book is well annotated and only could be improved if it had a bibliography or perhaps a list of recommended reading.  Some of the views held at the time are still sadly around today.  One only need to surf the net or youtube to confirm that anti-Catholic and racial bigotry is still with us today.
