MEDIA REVIEWS
""Beside the Troubled Waters" is a memoir that tells both photographs' stories and many others in a straightforward, compelling narrative that makes a powerful impact.
-"-The Huntsville Times"
Dr. Hereford s as told to autobiography is a fine, quick read that covers significant aspects of African American social history, the history of the civil rights movement, and medical history. As Dr. Ellis notes in the introduction, Hereford certainly can tell a story. This is an important book. It deserves a wide and intelligent readership.
