This Is Some Country

Postcard, dated July 30, 1932. Front reads "In The Heart of the Mountains, The Great Smoky Mountains Park) -

Well, this is some country down here. They raise cotton instead of wheat and hay. Had some cidar today but not like that in Tompkins County. On our way home now.

Found in "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. Published by The Viking Press, 1939.
