The book is set forth in three parts: background of the families together with an explanation of rice and cotton production- Civil War letters and journals- and a post Civil War narrative. The autobiographical narrative is entitled Reminiscences which picks up the family story and takes the reader through the Clay familys last attempts to plant rice on the plantation.

Shades of Gray also includes maps of the plantation areas on the endpapers, lists of slave records, copy of estate tax returns, chapter notes, bibliography and index.
