A Gathering of Old Men" is a great novel by Ernest J Gaines who again so vividly captures the prejudice in the south in the 1970's. Ernest Gaines is a great American author! By Thriftbooks. com User, September 13, 1999. The book focuses on racial issues of the Southern United States, and also the companionship between friends and the strength of family. Like I said the book takes place in Louisiana in 1970 and starts off with a killing of a Cajun farm worker, Beau Boutan. I enjoy books by this man. He could truly be one of America's greatest current authors.
