    "Boys, let us get up a club." Six restless young men raided the linens at a friend's mansion, pulled pillowcases over their heads, hopped on horses, and cavorted through the streets of Pulaski, Tennessee. The six friends named their club the Ku Klux Klan, and, all too quickly, their club grew into the self-proclaimed Invisible Empire with secret dens spread across the South. This is the story of how a secret terrorist group took root in America's democracy.

    Overall

    this book hardly mentions the kkk. it instead describes the perils and difficult times of african americans during the reconstruction period post civil war in detail. it's quite interesting in that respect, but i wanted to hear how the kkk grew and why it still exists in america, etc. i feel it was advertised as something that it was not.

    When Rose sees Joe in an Oxford bar, it is instant infatuation. He is everything that turns her on: a gifted musician with wit and high achiever. In her mind, at least, they are ideally matched. But Joe has no intention of settling down.

    what an interesting story- combines mystery, mental illness, affairs.... i usually only listen to top 10 mystery/thriller books...... this author should be there.

    In the life of Precious Ramotswe, a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build, there is rarely a dull moment, and in the latest installment in the universally beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, there is much happening on Zebra Drive and Tlokweng Road. Mma Ramotswe is experiencing staffing difficulties. Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni asks to be put in charge of a case involving an errant husband. But can a man investigate such matters as successfully as the number-one lady detective can?

    Joanne says: "#1 Ladies continued enjoyment"
    "wow. in a bad way."
