Auburn University possesses a rich and storied past.   Dwayne Cox's The Village on the Plain tells the story of a small private college that transformed itself in the face of sweeping national events and state politics, not only to survive the threats but to emerge more complex and resilient.  It is a lively and authoritative history of the rivalries, achievements, and controversies surrounding the growth of Alabama's premier land-grant institution.
