The Barter Lady (1934) (Paperback)
A Woman Farmer Sees It Through
With her husband dead, her farm mortgaged, and her five children to educate, Evelyn Harris decided to keep her livelihood and family together rather than sell out. In The Barter Lady: A Woman Farmer Sees It Through, the
author relates her experiences for an entire year during the height of the Depression when she exchanged firewood for clothes, vegetables for school fees, turkeys and pears for books and magazines—and succeeded when
most thought she would surely fail.
