Between the stock market crash, a rich man’s greed and the Navarro County drought an indentured slave is left with few [if any] choices. Jamison Baines Weir is born the son of a sharecropper where hard times and sorrow are a way of life. It is a way of life Jamie never questions until famine and malice force him to leave the dying farm and follow a path that leads to murder and mystery.
All eyes were on Wall Street, but truth be told, the market crash paled in comparison to the Navarro County drought.
A Form of Free Slavery?
Sharecroppers were provided land for farming, shelter for their family, equipment and credit for living expenses until the harvest. The sharecropper provided labor - his only resource. After the harvest they settled up, the landowner received three-fourths of the profit and the sharecropper one fourth. Of course the sharecropper's share went toward paying his credit bill and often he was left owing so he had little choice but to stay on the farm, do it again and try to produce more so he could get out of debt, but debt was always waiting at the end of the row.
