Look Away Dixieland: A Carpetbagger's Great-Grandson Travels Highway 84 in Search of the Shack-up-on-Cinder-Blocks, Confederate- by James B. Twitchell

In Look Away, Dixieland Vermont-native James Twitchell sets out from his home in Florida on the inauguration day of America's first black president to find the "real" South and to try to figure out the truth about his illustrious ancestor, Marshall Harvey Twitchell -- a carpetbagger and a victim of the Coushatta Massacre (having both his arms shot off), which made the front page of the New York Times in 1873. Twitchell travels from Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp across Alabama and Mississippi to Coushatta, Louisiana in a RV. As he drives through the heart of Dixie, Twitchell sorts through the prejudices he learned from his northern rearing. Ultimately, he uncovers facts about his great-grandfather and his family's past while revealing some of the differences and similarities between the North and South that ultimately define us as nation.
