Book Review on Sharecropping in Louisianna

I wanted to share my latest review of Tate authors Lillian Laird Duff and Linda Duff Niemeir's book "Sharecropping in North Louisiana: A Family's Struggle Through the Great Depression". This book is a well-written historical narrative that vividly depicts the love, life, and adversities shared by several generations within one family. Reading this narrative is like sitting down with a dear friend and discovering the very depth of her soul. It is reminiscent of a warm kitchen on a cold winter’s day when the smell of freshly made bread saturates the air. This narrative gives off that type of satisfying fragrance as you read about the many lives affected by the consistent love and faith that embraced this family through many struggling years. The historical value of a narrative such as this is priceless. As a teacher, an author, and a historian, I believe this is meant to be shared and to be learned from by our generation, our children, and our children’s children.
