POTATOES DON'T GROW ON TREES JOURNEYING IN THE SOUTH A Peep At The Four Volumes Volume One: I Am Somebody Hillary is a small child growing up in rural Georgia. All she knows is her sharecropping family and the congenial, supportive neighbors. Life comes rushing by, introducing her to a consuming fire and to loss of a home, rapists, hardships and the realities of Jim Crow lifestyles and laws. Her life is never a bed or roses. Even when toiling a ten-mile walk to achieve basic education, the bus riders aim to knock Bud, Hillary, and her brothers off course. Her shotgun-handling momma attempts to save the family. In their flight for safety, Hillary clings on to the wagon, pulled by a mule, escaping to achieve a desk job in the white-only haven. The desk job is her destiny.
