Author Details Life as a Sharecropper’s Daughter
LETONA , AR – Today’s world is completely different than it was when Lula White Poor was growing up as the daughter of a sharecropper in eastern Arkansas . She details her story in her new book releasing this month, titled “Sharecropper’s Daughter.”
Poor describes how she and her brothers lived in shacks provided by the landowners their daddy worked for each year. In the early 1930s and ’40s, the school calendar revolved around the harvest, and kids were trusted with responsibility and freedom at a young age.
This meant a lot of hard work and growing up fast, she says, but it also meant a whole lot of fun. They knew to make the most of what they had, and with it had a ball.
“When I started school, I learned that we were ‘poor’ by the standards of the ‘town kids..’ However, when I became an adult, I found that they were wrong. I had never been poor; I just had a different kind of riches,” the author writes.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available at any bookstore nationwide or can be ordered through the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore or by visiting barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com or target.com.
