This book is an oral history account of an African-American family who survived the harsh conditions of sharecropping and being farm hands in the cotton fields during the 1940s through the 1970s in the South. Though some of the memories are dimmed by time, the brothers and sisters telling their stories give accounts of the hardship they endured while growing up as children in the cotton fields in the South to the best of their recollection. It is told through the eyes of thirteen of the fourteen children who started work at six or seven years old chopping cotton for $1.50 per day, working from 6: 00 a.m. to 6: 00 p.m. They tell what it was like to pick cotton afrom canat see to canat seea for two cents a pound, and how they took pride in who could pick the most because it was an honest dayas work.
