LucilleMoreWitty, amusing, and inspirational - this extraordinary collection of journal entries taken from Lucille Watson, a young southern woman growing up in the early twentieth century, provides insightful racial, social, and economic commentary.

Lucille Watsons entries offer uninterrupted narrative from 1927-1932 of her day-to-day life on Cross Keys Plantation in Louisiana. From managing the cotton fields, to hunting, to playing bridge and poker on a daily basis, Lucilles resilience and courage is a harsh contrast to the rest of the countrys immense economic struggle during the Great Depression.

While afforded leisure time in her early years, she decides to work for the government to save the plantation when the price of cotton drops. High Water, High Cotton, and High Times provides a fascinating glimpse into the mind of a high-spirited young woman who works effortlessly to defy social convention.
