's review

it was amazing

I was going to give this four stars. After I finished reading it (at about 1:30 am, right before bed)I thought "That was an interesting look at all the different kinds of people who participated, but it didn't tell me that much." 45 minutes later I was still thinking about, so I got out of bed to go review some anecdotes. This morning I ordered one of the books used a source of information to get a more in-depth overview of this time period.

Basically, this book is like a gateway drug. It is full of interesting personalities relating their personal experiences, plus a brief overview of the terrible times that bought about the need for Freedom Riders. I'd definitely recommend checking this book out, or at the very least heading over to the website:
