The book looks at a "typical" Southern community and traces its long process of economic, social, and cultural evolution. The author shows the transformation of a loosely knit Western community of pioneer homesteaders into a distinctly Southern society. This region was first setlted by farmers and herders and by the turn of the nineteenth century, the wealthiest residents began to acquire slaves and to plant cotton, hastening the demise of the pioneer economy.
