Jonathan Bryant has written a solid, insightful study of the transition in one central Georgia county from the Old South to the New. Bryant, who teaches history and directs the jurisprudence program at the University of Baltimore, has put his legal and historical training (as well as his own Georgia background) to good use in weaving together diverse strands of change and continuity in the Georgia cotton belt. Despite a large black electoral majority (about 3:2) in Greene County, the Republican party there was fragile and vulnerable, just as it was elsewhere in the South.
In How Curious a Land, Jonathan Bryant follows the county's social, economic, the legal transformation from a wealthy, self-sufficient plantation economy based on slavery to a largely impoverished, economically dependent community dominated by a new commercial class of merchants and lawyers. I read this book with great interest because my Clements Family, my 3rd & 2nd great grandfather and my Great Grandpa all lived in Greene County. I find this book very honest and revealing! I feel there are many such counties in Georgia that history are quite similar during the same period of time, 1850 -1885. I have read an older book published in 1930, "The History of Wilkinson County". I wonder why the point was made in that book the period 1840 to 1860 was the "Golden Era of Wilkinson County.

No other word adequately expresses the feeling of a drive through the redlands of northern Greene County. What once were fertile bottomlands and a rich plantation district known as Prosperity Ridge are now empty lands. Stunted second-growth timber covers most of the region.
