The gripping memoir of a Latina family on a small farm in north Texas in the 1930s.

Lita de los Santos writes from first-hand knowledge of the Dust Bowl, the Depression, and Roosevelt’s farm programs and most especially from her wealth of personal memories of life as the fifteenth child of an Hispanic sharecropping family that faced life with humor and love even in tight times.

A unique story by a unique storyteller whose sharp mind, vivid memory and touching stories belie her 80-plus years.

Look for Lita’s second volume, recounting the adventures and misadventures of her 11 brothers and four sisters in 2011.
