A presidential memoir of lasting importance, Carter's account of his rural Depression boyhood is a portrait of pre-Civil Rights Georgia that dramatizes unforgettably how the country has changed. It is, in many ways, a stunning and honest biography of the American South, written by one of its most talented sons.

Carter's tender and eloquent writings trigger memories of my own childhood in a different but equally simple and predictable time. It is a must-read classic on the rural life in the Depression era of the South.
