Author: Larry Woody
A Dixie Farewell chronicles the lives of University Of Mississippi football Player Roy Lee Chucky Mullins and Vanderbilt University fullback Brad Gaines and the heartrending account of the hit which brought them together. Gains and Mullins are presented as disparte forces - Mullins from a poor black family and Gaines from a middle class white background - and how their lives became meshed through the hardships that they must face. While the story ends with the tragic death of Chucky Mullins, it is nonetheless a tale of undying courage, indelible spirit, and the determination of two very special young men.
