About the book:

Without any fear of repeating himself, Erskine Caldwell once again describes the history of a family, its ruin. It is about the "disappearing" of true Americans. With an extraordinary sense of humour, Caldwell deals with the richest man in Maine ridiculing his stinginess. In the series of declines, there happens one more to inveterate Thede Emerson that will hit him the most: after parting with his son, he commits suicide because his father would not give him $ 500 for the trip to University. Thede loses his daughter, too, as she gets married to Gervais, a French Canadian, the typical example of a sub-race in the eyes of Thede.
