For generations Eula Too's family has been making a journey North, year after year, step by painful step; and she's determined to be the one to make it all the way to Chicago. In and out of school, taking care of her fourteen brothers and sisters, she can see no way out. But when a new family burden threatens to overwhelm her, she at last leaves for the city, only to find that her life gets even tougher. Ranging from the Deep South at the turn of the century, to a diverse contemporary town filled with people striving for a better life, "Some People, Some Other Place" is J. California Cooper at her irresistible, surprising best.
