Benton's Row 1954


This history of a pioneering Southern family unfolds in this story of triumph and tragedy. In 1842, Tom Benton arrives in the Red River Valley, one jump ahead of a Texas posse bent on hanging him. In 1920 his wife Sarah, aged ninety-seven, dies peacefully in her rocker on the veranda of Tom Benton’s sprawling plantation known as Broad Acres, nestled in the exotic and mysterious Louisiana river country. This is a spellbinding story of four brawling generations of Bentons   ____ a family that comes to a violent end caused by its own illicit Negro branch.
