God's Little Acre - Erskine Caldwell 1933 - The Viking Press, New York - First Edition Scarce in such a clean bright dust jacket.

Censured by the Georgia Literary Commission, banned in Boston, attacked by the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, and once led the all-time best-seller list, with more than ten million copies in print.

God's Little Acre chronicles the final decline of a poor white family in rural Georgia. Exhorted by their patriarch Ty Ty, the Waldens ruin their land by digging it up in search of gold. Complex sexual entanglements and betrayals lead to a murder within the family that completes its dissolution. Juxtaposed against the Waldens' obsessive search is the story of Ty Ty's son-in-law, a cotton mill worker in a nearby town who is killed during a strike.
