An American harvest: how one family moved from dirt-poor farming to a better life in the early 1900s

Image of item
Recorded dialogs of the Frank Raper "siblings speak of life growing up on a dirt-poor farm with no modern conveniences but a plentitude [sic] of religious teachings and manual labor. They recount their hard-fought struggle to get an education and leave the farm for a more rewarding livelihood elsewhere. Their family reminiscences personalize a widespread movement from farm to urban ventures in early twentieth-century America" (p.xiv). Cardy Raper also includes her own "occasional musings." Each of the nine siblings become recognized for their achievements in everything from an official of the US State Department to a world-renowned expert professor of botany at Harvard.
