The fourth child in a family of fourteen children, Eunie Mae, was raised poor in material things, and rich in family, and community ties. The story Eunie Mae tells provides an interesting contrast to today. Born during World War I, Eunie Mae lived during the Jim Crow era in the south, the Great Depression, Race Riots, changes in farming that led to the end of sharecropping, and the start of World War II. Her first hand account is a delight to read.
