This chapter contains a brief examination of southern plain folk and their concerns about social status. Along with that description the major thesis of this book is expanded and includes ancillary theses, including the nettlesome notion of thirty-year mortgages. Because the Delta is a central player in the histories of Dyess Colony and Delta Cooperative Farm, the Introduction introduces the problematic nature of Delta cotton production and a brief history of attempts to development a strong cotton-based economy in the region.
