ABOUT THE BOOK:
Palmer has created a uniquely Southern style in telling this story without losing the truth of Wallace’s many moral and political contradictions that made him the ultimate prodigal son of politics in the deep South. Patrick Miller, President, Southeastern Literary Tourism Initiative I couldn't stop reading. It's riveting. I had to ask myself why I didn't know how much Wallace accomplished in the state legislature... during those turbulent times. It's amazing. Nolan White, Assistant Editor, Great Days Outdoors Magazine Who is this man George Wallace that the media has consistently portrayed as the modern equivalent of Adolph Hitler? Author Mary Palmer has done a meticulous job of peeling back the layers of this complex man. Jody Conrad, Adjunct English Instructor, Faulkner University Author Mary Palmer takes us into the tumultuous political scene of George Wallace. George Wallace: An Enigma reveals the good, the bad, and the ugly, of one of the most controversial politicians of our time... and how his views evolved over time Cindy Ingram, Director of Satsuma Public Library 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.
