As the third generation in line from the brothers, the author based this book on stories told by his grandparents-life stories of a poor family. He also describes his own life from his childhood to adulthood-from the fields to the US Navy. He refers to this work as a black man's Grapes of Wrath...and Charlie and Ed started it all!
