Click to enlargeWatering the Sahara: <br>Recollections of <br>Paul Green from <br>1894 to 1937

By James R. Spence

Edited by Margaret D. Bauer

Based primarily on previously unpublished interviews
with Paul Green, Watering the Sahara is a compelling
study that chronicles the dramatist's life from childhood
in rural Harnett County to military service in World War I,
the beginnings of his career as both educator and writer,
his work as a Hollywood screenwriter, and the theater
collaborations that culminated in the creation of the
symphonic drama The Lost Colony. Extensive quotation from the interviews provides
the reader with new insight into the complexity of North Carolina’s leading playwright.
