Summary
Living off the land -- hunting, fishing, and farming, along with a range of specialized crafts that provided barter or cash income -- was a way of life that persisted well into the twentieth century in the Big Thicket of southeast Texas. Beofre this way of life ended with World War II, professional photographer Larry Jene Fisher spent a decade between the 1930's and 1940's photographing Big Thicket people living and working in the old ways. His photographs, the only known collection on this subject, constitute an irreplaceable record of lifeways that first took root in the southeastern woodlands of the colonial United States and eventually spread all across the Southern frontier
