Jonas Wilkerson, hat in hand, stood beside her, his sallow tight-skinned face hardly concealing the fury of hate that possessed him at being so unceremoniously turned out of the best overseer’s job in the County.
Old and young, talkative and taciturn, rich planter and sallow Cracker, they all had two things in common, lice and dysentery.
He had the sallow malarial face of the south Georgia Cracker, pale pinkish hair and washed-out blue eyes which even in delirium were patient and mild.
Now Jonas shook with a fury equal to Scarlett’s and his sallow face was as red as an angry turkey gobbler’s.
He was thin and sallow faced and his yellow eyes were watery and sunken in creases of loose flesh.
Their faces beneath their sun-bonnets were sallow and malariallooking but shining clean and their freshly ironed calicoes glistened with starch.
India leaped to her feet, red flooding her sallow face.
