In this rich memoir of his early life, the celebrated scholar and writer Henry Louis Gates, Jr. , gives an indelible portrait of a vanished America. Born in 1950, he grew up in Piedmont, West Virginia, a town perched on the side of a hill in the Allegheny Mountains. He graduated summa cum laude from Yale, and his Ph. D. from Cambridge. Full of humor, thoughtful, and engaging, Gates has written a classic oming-of-age story that will inspire generations to come. A portion of this book was previously printed in "The New Yorker". ; Cover Art; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 216 pages; 29341
