Sobre o livro
Examines the nonplantation region of upcountry Georgia as a microcosm of the South. The author showed how farmers were buffeted by such forces as the unravelling of antebellum household economy, the development of market forces, the growth of a new class of merchants-landlords, and rising tensions between town and countryside.
