Unsentimentally realistic, this classic novel is a reflection of the effects of poverty on tenant farmers in the South during the Great Depression. It focuses on the Lester family, former cotton farmers who continue to live on their ancestors' plantation even though it has long ceased to be prosperous. Jeeter and Ada Lester have 17 children, two of whom still live at home: Ellie May, their only unmarried daughter who has a cleft lip, and Dude, their youngest son who is mentally handicapped. The family's antics, while at times vile and perverse, depict the racism and moral ambiguity that existed among some impoverished Southerners at that time and represent Erskine Caldwell's critique of the failed economic system and its consequences. "Realista sin ser sentimental, esta novela clasica es una reflexion de los efectos de la pobreza en los aparceros en el sur durante la Gran Depresion. Se enfoca en la familia Lester, antiguos agricultores de algodon que siguen viviendo en la plantacion de sus antepasados, a pesar de que esta desde hace tiempo dejo de ser prospera. Jeeter y Ada Lester tienen 17 hijos, dos de los cuales todavia viven en casa: Ellie May, su unica hija soltera que tiene un labio leporino, y Dude, su hijo menor que tiene deficiencia mental. Las travesuras de la familia, aunque a veces viles y perversas, muestran el racismo y la ambiguedad moral que existia entre algunos surenos empobrecidos en ese momento y representan la critica de Erskine Caldwell del sistema economico reprobado y sus consecuencias."
