Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976452812, Paperback)

Beyond the Rim: From Slavery to Redemption in Rappahannock County, Virginia, is a unique work of black history, telling the true story of "Sis-tah Cah-line" Terry, who toiled as a slave on central Virginia plantations, saw the Civil War, bore the children of a white slavemaster, and endured to live to the age of 108 in 20th Century America. It is lovingly told with humor and imagination by her great-grandson, who as a child heard these stories of slavery days from a fiesty woman who never gave up her thirst for independence and dignity. This unique work has attracted the attention of the Smithsonian Insitution's Anacostia Museum of African-American History, which is working on a documentary film about the author and his stories of great-grandmother Caroline Terry, the slave.
