After moving from the backwoods to the city, Gertie Nevel, a naive newcomer from Kentucky, develops a unique defense against the ugliness and despair of urban poverty, in a new edition of the classic American novel, first published in 1954, which contains a new afterword by Joyce Carol Oates. Reprint.

HARPERCOLL

Strong-willed, self-reliant Gertie Nevels's peaceful life in the Kentucky hills is devastated by the brutal winds of change. Uprooted from her backwoods home, she and her family are thrust into the confusion and chaos of wartime Detroit. And in a pitiless world of unendurable poverty, Gertie will battle fiercely and relentlessly to protect those things she holds most dear -- her children, her heritage . . . and her triumphant ability to create beauty in the suffocating shadow of ugliness and despair.
