Requiem by Fire
by Wayne Caldwell ’ 69

Smoky Mountains settlement home.
But they now face two options: Sell
their land to the federal government for
a national park or stay behind at their
own risk. The interaction between those
resisting and those willing to embrace

Southern survival and change by the winner of the Review’s first fiction contest,
held in 1999.

A Vietnam War Reader:
A Documentary History
From American and Vietnamese
by Michael H. Hunt
Hunt brings together American and
Vietnamese perspectives of the Vietnam
War — from Communist leaders,Viet-
namese peasants, Saigon loyalists and
North Vietnamese soldiers to U.S. policy-
makers, soldiers and critics of the war —
to explore how the complex conflict
affected the lives of many in social and
political spheres. This collection of pri-
mary sources reminds readers that the
struggle lasted much longer than the
decade of direct U.S. combat. Hunt is the
Everett H. Emerson Professor of history
emeritus at UNC.

residents with whom you share the meals.
