Wandering Dixie: Dispatches from the Lost Jewish South
Mad Creek Books, an imprint of Ohio State University Press, 2020
“In stunningly elegant prose, Eisenfeld uncovers the anonymous corners of Jewish and Confederate history. In this immersive gem of a book, she inspires hope for a nuanced and vital conversation about race by claiming her own role in ‘our troubled American story.’” —Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead
“Beautifully written and highly thoughtful, Wandering Dixie takes us on a powerful journey through the physical and internal landscapes of the South. Eisenfeld confronts religion, race, and reckoning, revealing the powerful vectors in our lives that push us into the unexpected.” —Randon Billings Noble, author of Be with Me Always
"Eisenfeld writes about Shenandoah the way Annie Proulx writes about Wyoming or Edward Abbey about the deserts of the Southwest: pristine, unsentimental, eloquent prose." --Kirkus
"Eisenfeld's endeavor to realize the human spirit is triumphant." --Blue Lyra Review
In this first-person travel journey through the lost communities of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Eisenfeld tells the story of her on-the-ground discovery of the relics and memories a few thousand mountain residents left behind when the government used eminent domain to kick them off their land to create Shenandoah National Park.
