Flour sack dresses on the Ten Mile

DeLoach, Jenny F. (author.).


Summary: "Jenny Franklin DeLoach grew up in a small white house with six siblings within a stone's throw of the Ten Mile Creek in a crossroads community known as Excelsior, Georgia. Her mother was Myrtis Lee Hiers Franklin, and ther father was Jasper Remer Franklin, known as J.R. Jenny recalls her childhood years with fondness and describes growing up poor but in the safe and carefree environment of the Fifties. She writes of a life that was simple and uncomplicated in every way. Her early childhood was before telephones and television and at a time when neighbors visited each other. It was out of necessity that her Mother invented ways to entertain her children, and the children were equally inventive in their forms of self-entertainment." -- inside front cover.
