Summary
The former president offers an account of growing up on a Georgia farm during the Depression and provides profiles of the people who shaped his life
Summary
In vivid detail and with "an appealingly gritty honesty" (Kirkus Reviews), former president Jimmy Carter relives his experiences growing up on a Georgia farm during the Depression in the time of segregation. In the process, he shares the difficulties of farm life and profiles the people who shaped his life, including his parents, his eccentric relatives, and his African-American friends. -- Description by Dawn Towery
