THE GULLY PATH, set in Mississippi during the turbulent era of the 1950's and 60's, follows the lives of two friends, one white, the other black. Sue Ann spends her pre-adolescent years protecting her best friend, Liz Bess, an African American girl who lives at the end of the gully path, from the prejudice and mistreatment of the white society of Mississippi. Book I, WHERE THE GULLY PATH BEGINS, tells Sue Ann's story from eleven years of age when she fought to maintain her friendship with Liz Bess, until Sue Ann's entrance in college. Book II, WHERE THE GULLY PATH ENDS, tells of Sue Ann's love story with Tate Douglas, a COFO worker from the North, and covers the violent summer of 1964. Liz Bess, now Elizabeth, returns to Mississippi from the North, to become a freedom fighter for her people and comes face to face with racist violence and death. Through the turmoil, Sue Ann is reminded of the words of Nagalee, Elizabeth's grandmother, on her deathbed: "Love ain't black, and love ain't white; it jes is."
