Growing Up on a Mississippi Subsistence Farm
To ensure that the world of Jimmye Hillman’s childhood in Greene County, Mississippi during the Great Depression doesn’t slip away, he has gathered together accounts of his family and the other people of Old Washington village. More than just childhood memories and a family saga, though, this book serves as a snapshot of the natural, historical, and linguistic details of the time and place. It is a remarkable record of Southern life.
