"The Texas January day was all blue and gold and barely crisp. Only the absence of leaves and sap, the presence of straggling bands of awkward crows, the gray-yellow flutter of field larks, and the broad, matter-of-fact hibernation of the earth said it was winter as Sam Tucker walked along the road, his long legs functioning automatically, farmerly. His body had about it the look of country dogs at the end of winter, when they are all ribs and leg muscles and jaw muscles and teeth. . . ." Hold Autumn in Your Hand, is the memorable story of Sam Tucker and the year that he contracts to farm sixty-eight acres of San Pedro bottomland. He is eager to work the rich soil despite the fact that he will earn only six bits a day. Sam, his wife Nona, their two children, and one of the most irrepressible grandmothers in modern fiction absorb the reader in their joys and disappointments. The story is built around Sam Tucker's determination to use his knowledge of the land and hard work to provide food for his family and hope for the future.… (más)

This was an unexpected treat! George Sessions Perry tells the story of a year in the life of poor texan farmhand, Sam Tucker who is uneducated, married with 2 children along with "granny", his grandmother he travels from farm to farm picking cotton, working the land many times along side the negroes. Although unschooled, he has an incredible ability to look at a situation and figure out a solution. Never giving up, knowing he's poor, but feeling blessed so easily by the smallest of things. Bartering his labor for goods, shelter, money, water,... whatever. He has a positive friendly attitude. Everyone likes him except his neighbor Henry Devers who is constantly trying to sabotage his efforts. The day finally comes when Sam can't hold his outrage at the newest act Devers pulls in destroying his garden and therefore affecting his family's health & life. His positve attitude with "when there's a will there's a way" mentality serves him well and is an inspiring story. "Hold Autumn in your hand" is the knowledge his whole family receives from sending young Daisey to school. Definitely a thumbs up recommendation!
