To the Chandler family in 1950's Black Oak, Arkansas, the cotton season means hard work, an influx of temporary workers -- and a host of complications. Hank Spruill, one of the hired hands has a violent temper that has gotten him into trouble with the law. Tally, his sister, is smitten with Cowboy, a Mexican laborer Hank despises. And with all the turmoil, 7-year-old Luke Chandler has seen a lot more than most kids his age. Source: Publisher.
