Sweet Beulah Land


*Sweet Beulah Land* reflects Harris' persistent interest in the people of Eastern North Carolina and the kinds of lives they carved out for themselves. The novel begins in 1931 when a handsome drifter wanders into Beulah Ridge, a tiny and largely self-contained community near the mouth of the Roanoke River. Harris peoples her fictitious community with an array of well-realized characters representing the range of people in her part of the world--sharecroppers, small farmers, landowners, and a new-style capitalist farmer. She tracks these individuals through seasonal change, personal change, social change and, finally, natural catastrophe.
