Description of the book "Tobacco Road":The original and important talent of Erskine Caldwell created an authentic picture of a family of poor whites in a forsaken part of Georgia that is absolutely breath-taking.
The story of the disintegration of old man Jeeter and his family, of their dehumanization, is so appalling that the reader is spellbound and has to read on.
This novel is not only the recital of a tale so stark as to excite hypnotic power. It is, most definitely, not a "shocker". It is a piece of genuine literature. The characters are vivid, accurate. The writing is frequently Rabelaisian. There is humor PDF and Pathos in this tragedy. Old man Jeeter's destiny - that of the white man, deteriorated by a climate inexorably adverse, fua1ly extinguished by a distant industrialism of which he is not even aware - touches the universal.
Set during the Depression in the depleted farmloads surrounding Augustus, Georgia, Tobacco Road was first published in 1932. It is the story of the Lesters, a family of destitute white sharecroppers debased by poverty to an elemental state of ignorance and selfishness.
