In this first full-length study to reconstruct the history of the plantation, Tiya Miles tells the story of Diamond Hills founding, its flourishing, its takeover by white land-lottery winners on the eve of the Cherokee Removal, its decay, and its renovation in the 1950s. Vividly written and extensively researched, this history illuminates gender, class, and cross-racial relationships on the southern frontier.
