The Least One, published originally in 1967, portrays a white sharecropping family during the Great Depression and is based on Borden Deal's experiences growing up on a small farm in northeastern Mississippi. ;My own memory produced a flood of material, ; said the author. ;I remembered the loss of the farm, the day the sheriff had come to dispossess us; I remembered picking blackberries and selling them in town for a dime a bucket; I remembered the hope and promise of a government mule. ; The story is told through the voice of a twelve-year-old, significantly called Boy Sword, and is set in a fictitious community that suggests the area of Cullman, Alabama. Deal portrays the realities of cotton-field work: planting, chopping, the laying-by time, and harvesting. He succeeds in evoking not only the crushing economic circumstances of poor Southern whites in that period but also their fierce sense of independence and self-sufficiency.Deal, Borden is the author of 'Least One' with ISBN 9780817306731 and ISBN 0817306730.
