Red River Review
by Vamp1969 on September 8, 2007Red River is undeniably powerful. Set against the backdrop of the "Reconstruction" after the Civil War in Colfax, Louisiana, and the very real "Riot of Colfax" on April 13th, 1873, we meet two special families, The Smith's and The Tademy's. The clear vividness of each character and the trials and the sacrafices each one endures is equivalent to a precious family heirloom, to be remembered and passed from one generation to the next, much like the book itself. This story is overflowing with incredible, inspiring pride and should be on the bookshelf of every school library. There is a certain aura about this story mingling the insurmountable love and respect they have for one another, and their duty to their children and community, making this book totally unforgettable.
