Product Overview

Told with love and a profound appreciation for a time, place and people, this series of engaging vignettes explores six years in the life of a young girl in 1930s Florida. Nameless and faceless, the little girl wanders through these stories filled with curiosity and questions as she meets the ingenious people of the Great Depression in rural Florida. Although an outsider, she is quickly accepted by this strong, struggling and kindly community. She shares their simple joys, great tragedies and dark secrets.

The rich tales in Sweetgum Slough are about the sweet and earthy roots of learning. While these stories are, indeed, about "joy and hookworms and red-taled fishes," they are more about a child''s need for freedom to adventure, choose paths, take risks, examine and question.

Claire Karssiens''s memoir is as unique as it is memorable. Her lyrical prose and stunning imagery beautifully capture 1930s Florida and will sweep you into the very heart of a little girl''s soul.
