Publisher's Description

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
In 2010, photographer McNair Evans returned to his childhood home in Laurinburg, North Carolina to retrace his father's life and legacy after his death nine years earlier. His father's passing had exposed the looming insolvency of their family farming businesses, ending five generations of family and financial stability. The economic impact on the family was immediate but the emotional impact lingered with Evans.

Seeking to comprehend how the man he admired could have hidden the impending disaster from those he loved, McNair Evans delved into his family origins and his father's history to create a multi-layered photographic narrative about love and loss. Forty-seven of the artist's poignant and lyrical photographs along with various ephemera are presented in his first book, a hardcover monograph. The book's themes are universal - the complex relationship between fathers and sons, the strength of family bonds, and the disappearance of an American agrarian way of life.
