Cotton is giving way to synthetic fiber- mill work is declining- race relations are volatile- the nearby military base is expanding- girls and women are trapped too often economically and socially- men are losing the assurance of secure work and dominion over their families. Through the eyes of Tollie and Lily, two highschool chums who are each others salvation, Constance Pierce chronicles a time of enormous change and difficulty and ends on a note of endurance and triumph.
