Product Description

First published in 1900 during an era when many white American leaders waxed hysterical about the threat to "Anglo-Saxon civilization" posed by racial intermixing, The House Behind the Cedars sensitively explores the lives and fates of John and Rena Walden, two young African-Americans who decide to pass for white in order to claim their share of the American dream.
