The Southern American states have once practiced the farming system of sharecropping. This style of farming gives the tenant access to the landowner’s lands as long as he gives out a percentage of the crop yield. This kind of arrangement between tenant and landowner can either be beneficial or damaging to their relationship. In “Together We Can Make It,” author Yvette Brooks Tyler has written an enthralling book that captures the flavor and traditions of a bygone era where sharecropping and the landowner and tenant relationship still exist.

“Together We Can Make It” is a highly engrossing book that follows the lives of two families who throughout the years have been intertwined through a combination of personal history and family secrets. This book is a fictional account about a time period lived by many in the rural south. Its concepts are historical and fantasy intertwined to tell a colorful story that revolves around the lives of the Tezeno and Breaux families who have had a sharecropping arrangement for many years. The story shows the struggles and pain of both families as they come to terms with the changing times and how they slowly realize that only through unity can they prosper.

This intriguing book is filled with various themes and concepts that capture the spirit of the rural south complete with all the idiosyncrasies and traditions that makes it unique.
