Ecology of a Cracker Childhood Overview

The Ecology of a Cracker Childhood is a work of creative nonfiction by Janisse Ray. Throughout the linked essays, Ray blends the genres of nature study and memoir in order to create a vivid picture of her childhood and to highlight the precarious situation of the Longleaf Pine within her native area of Georgia. This award-winning collection of essays focuses on Ray's memories of her childhood years; her familial relationships over the course of many family members' struggles with mental illness, her ever-present connection to nature, and her process of building an identity alongside the stereotypes expected of her by people outside the Southern United States. The essays that comprise the book contain themes of legacy, sense of place, perseverance, and conservation.
