TitlePoverty's Second Generation. ..
AbstractMaps, illustration, and article about the continuing cycle of poverty and welfare recipients in "the southwest tip of Missouri" (including New Madrid and Cape Girardeau Counties, etc.) known as the "Bootheel," despite a "strong agricultural economy" since the early 1900s based on cotton production.
NotesPage 163: "State Welfare Department figures show that the Bootheel has more persons picking up federal suplus food than St. Louis and Kansas City combined."
