    The book details the other 50% of citizens-non property owners and their battle for existence. The search for economic existence plays out in family movement in Mecklenburg and Union Counties in the early 20th century. A reminder of the tremendous changes that have taken place in our area over the past 100 years.

    What was life like as a tenant farmer born in the piedmont area of North Carolina in 1890 and living well into the 20th century? A married man with six children, Samuel Edgar Hartis struggles to provide for his family but experiences one grueling hardship after another. He suffers crop failures, experiences illness and injuries, loses his wife in the midst of all this and then his son is killed in Germany at the end of World War II. This final blow causes him to suffer an emotional/mental breakdown and spends five years at home in deep depression. Finally, he is admitted to a psychiatric hospital and writes this marvelous and insightful autobiography of his life and times. He was restored to mental health through fishing! His grandson thankfully edited his writings and added valuable supplemental family material to this book. Hartis is buried in Indian Trail Cemetery. A real delight to read!
