Lewis Winslow has heavily invested in the stock market, but the crash of '29 leaves him a pauper.

With the help of Clinton Longstreet, the Winslows make their way from NYC down to rural Ga. Can they learn to adjust to country life?
Kat Winslow, at 13, adjusts best to these new life conditions. However, her sisters, Jenny and Hannah, and her brother Josh, don't seem to be taking the changes with anything resembling good grace. Josh, a raging drunk before the crash, becomes a bootlegger to feed his alcoholic appetite.
