ldquo;I speak in what others often hear as a strange accent. My past canrsquo;t be located. I live in Buffalo, New York, an exile from the South. But these arenrsquo;t Yankee dreams, even though my past seems like a fabrication, a dreamworld in which Irsquo;m a paper character and not a historical participant, with scars from barbed wire ripping under the pressure and flying through the air like a swarm of bees, or a horse rearing up and banging its head into mine from within, exploding my forehead.rdquo; -from the Preface nbsp; Wisteria draped on a soldierrsquo;s coffin, sent home to Alabama from a Virginia battlefield. The oldest standing house in the county, painted gray and flanked by a pecan orchard. A black steel fence tool, now perched atop a pile of books like a prehistoric bird of prey. In Dreamworlds of Alabama, Allen Shelton explores physical, historical, and social landscapes of northeastern Alabama. His homeplace near the Appalachian foothills provides the setting for a rich examination of cultural practices, a place where the language of place and things resonates with as much vitality and emotional urgency as the language of humans. nbsp; Throughout the book, Shelton demonstrates how deeply culture is inscribed in the land and in the most intimate spaces of the person-places of belonging and loss, insight and memory. nbsp; Born and raised in Jacksonville, Alabama, Allen Shelton is associate professor of sociology at Buffalo State College.
