    1. Great Depression, East Texas, tenant farming This book could easily have become a cliche, but it is NOT!! The "New Yorker" review of George Sessions Perry's 1942 work says it better than I could: "A miniature 'Grapes of Wrath' seen through optimistic glasses." I highly recommend this book to those who are looking for realistic fiction set in the 1930s. You might expect a book containing Southern homilies, folklore, death & dying, crop planting, and such to be one that does not strike a singl [...]


    2. An impressive book which vividly and effectively captures the desperation and poverty of East Texas sharecroppers during the depression. It is not a long book, and as a result you'll find it a quick read. It is not particularly deep, but it is very effective at giving the reader a taste of life at this time.Adding immense color to the book is Granny. She is quite a memorable character and livens up what would otherwise have been a rather dark book. Another stand-out, although for shorter duratio [...]


    3. George Sessions Perry is one of those authors who can make you feel you're there, living the joys and trials of his characters. Sam, with his wife Nona and two young children, is a tenant farmer in Depression-era Texas. It's through the eyes and muscle and surprising inner spirit of Sam that the reader enters into this family's life. It seems to me that their struggles to get by would defeat the rest of us. Sam draws strength, however, from his calling as a farmer and perhaps from the acceptance [...]


    4. Surprisingly enjoyable, especially for a school read. Hold Autumn in Your Hand was reminiscent of an optimistic Grapes of Wrath. Set in Texas, the book follows a tenant farmer from the beginning of the planting season to the harvest, depicting the highs and lows of his life. Though the book has an optimistic tone, one can see that Sam Tucker's situation will never get better if he remains connected to the land, but if he leaves the land, he will lose his spirit.


    5. A sort of haunting book about a man who dreams of feeding his family with crops that he knows he can grow. His opposition is the post industrial revolution era he lives during, where sharecropping and debt peonage makes it exceedingly difficult for him to get by even when things go perfectly, and the prospect of being forced to turn his back on the land that calls to him in favor of an automobile assembly line job is a dark shadow in his possible future.


    6. My Father gave me this book when I left home to go to Boarding School. His father gave it to him when he left for College. It is a wonderful read and helped me to understand the way that my Dad and his family was brought up. I loved it.


    7. This book manages to be always hopeful and always real in detail after detail. It was not written by a farmer, but a journalist who sympathized with the farming people with little to eat around Rockdale.
