Governor George Wallace was a complex man who passionately attempted to retain white supremacy in the South. Even after an attempted assassination confined him to a wheelchair, he didn't waver in pursuing his controversial goals. Did he achieve a temporary measure of success, or did his fight for integration under the guise of States Rights have an ironic result? Author Mary S. Palmer had exclusive access to interview George Wallace shortly before the end of his life at his home--one of the last interviews he granted. Using her journalistic skills, she delved deep into matters previously not privy to the public. It may have been the most revealing interview ever conducted by friend or foe.
