Based on a rich cache of personal and business records, Curtis J. Evans’s study of Daniel Pratt and his “Yankee” town in the heart of the Deep South challenges the conventional portrayal of the South as a premodern region hostile to industrialization and shows that, contrary to current popular thought, the South was not so markedly different from the North.
