A story of the industrialization of the South, To Make My Bread revolves around a family of Appalachian mountaineers - small farmers, hunters, and moonshiners - driven by economic conditions to the milltown and transformed into millhands, strikers, and rebels against the established order. Recognized as one of the major works on the Gastonia textile strike, Grace Lumpkin's novel is important for anyone interested in cultural or feminist history as it deals with early generations of women radicals committed to addressing the difficult connections of class and race. Suzanne Sowinska's introduction looks at Lumpkin's volatile career and this book's critical reception.

About the Author:

Grace Lumpkin was born and raised in Georgia. She spent many years working for the YMCA in Georgia, spending summers in the North Carolina mountains, where she experienced the plights of rural laborers firsthand. She also wrote four books, including The Wedding and Full Circle before her death in 1980.

Review:

I cannot imagine how anyone could read To Make My Bread and not be moved by it. (The Nation)

It takes in its comprehensive sweep the whole flow of a primitive mountain people...outstanding. (The New Republic)

Miss Lumpkin conquers by the depth of her human sympathy, by the fidelity of her characterization. (London Times)
