The Wind Done Gone Author

Host Cheryl Corley talks with author Alice Randall, whose first book is the controversial The Wind Done Gone. Randall's book retells the Southern classic, Gone With The Wind, from the point of view of a former slave. Margaret Mitchell's estate took Randall to court earlier this year to keep the book from being published, but it has made it to bookstore shelves. (7:06-7:20) {Randall, Alice, The Wind Done Gone. Houghton Mifflin Company, New York: 2001. ISBN: 0-618-10450-x}
