Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAlthough cotton farming still goes on in Texas, the lifeways described here have nearly vanished as the state has become highly urbanized. Thus, this book preserves a fascinating record of an important part of Texas' rural heritage.
Pressestimmen"This is an important contribution to the study of rural Texas on the eve of the Great Depression and represents, as far as I know, the only study of its kind that weaves together memoirs and oral interviews...into a richly textured tapestry of cotton culture in south central Texas." Neil Foley, Associate Professor of History, University of Texas at Austin
