A House in the Uplands

"I do as I Please!"

"Hell, I don't need any excuse for what I do," he told her, his voice rising with anger. "Nobody's going to tell me what I can do and what I can't do. I live my life the way I want to live it. That's some­thing for you to remember. I do as I please, and you'll like it!"


Grady Dunbar had some dangerous and out­moded, ideas about a husband's rights. He saw nothing wrong in having mortgaged his planta­tion to the hilt to pay his gambling debts, abus­ing his wife, threatening his field hands if they attempted to find paying jobs elsewhere or in dissipating and drinking his time away.

This is the dramatic story of his downfall, and the people who tried to save him—his lawyer cousin who defended Negro hands and white sharecroppers from his violent temper, and his lovely child-bride whose innocent belief in the man she married was cruelly shattered.


Book Condition(AF) Used, Almost Flawless. I list this book as "like new" due to its age and fine condition even though it has been circulated. It's rare to find a book over 20 years old that looks like this. Both covers have nice gloss, binding is square, all pages are clean, clear and complete.
