This volume presents the actual conditions faced by the cotton farmer of the South. Victim of the one-crop system, preyed upon by the weather, the weevil, the market, and politics, his lot is a speculative one. Vance analyzes the cotton culture complex shrewdly, sympathetically, and soundly. His book is a rare combination of sound economics and human interests.

Originally published in 1929.
