Summary
The story of the Lesters, a family of destitute white sharecroppers debased by poverty to an elemental state of ignorance and selfishness
Summary
The Depression has hit the depleted farmlands of Augusta, Georgia, hard. For the Lester family, grinding poverty has become a way of life. Trapped by ignorance and selfishness, the Lesters are torn between surrendering to their hunger and sexual longings, and the fear that they may be slipping even lower than they already are in society's eyes
