Erskine Caldwell is, in my opinion, one of the greatest writers of all time. 'Tobacco Road' depicts the Lester family as a poor, illiterate and ignorant family who will do whatever it takes to survive. This book not only contains humor and surprise but also an overall 'sadness' to a family who's dreams will never come true. A truly different kind of story you won't forget.

Although I found this to be a good book, the story was oppressive as I'm sure the life was during this time period.

Read this as a young adult. By erskine williams. Great southern history, set in a fictional poor southern family. Literary historical fiction at its best.

Awful!!! I love Southern lit but this book is full of stupidity and repetition. I found myself wondering why I was reading the same page over again... I wasn't the author must have been trying to meet a page quota and like a derelict college student just repeated himself until they got to a 100 pages!!!
