MEDIA REVIEWS
In this edition of Mallory s journal the editors have limited their intrusion on the text, identifying interventions in square brackets and making a few silent corrections of the author s accidental errors. Their numbered notes, which represent one-quarter of the volume, identify and explain not only persons, places, and events but also farming techniques and tools, as well as varieties of plants and insect pests mentioned in the text. Information in the notes is drawn from census, church, court, and military records; contemporary newspapers; and secondary sources. A detailed index facilitates reference on subjects ranging from agriculture to genealogy to religion. . . . Thanks to this edition of his journal by Grady McWhiney, the late Warner O. Moore Jr., and Robert F. Pace, we can see the variety of farmer-planters of the mid-nineteenth century South. And we can trace their perceptions from the antebellum frontier era through the Civil War and Reconstruction.
