- We can order this
Of the roughly one thousand FSA photographs taken in Arkansas, approximately two hundred have been selected for inclusion in this volume. Portraying workers picking cotton for five cents an hour, families evicted from homes for their connection with the Southern Tenant Farmers Union, and the effects of flood and drought that cruelly exacerbated the impact of economic disaster, these remarkable black-and-white images from Ben Shahn, Arthur Rothstein, Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Russell Lee, and other acclaimed photographers illustrate the extreme hardships that so many Arkansans endured throughout this era.
These powerful photographs continue to resonate, providing a glimpse of life in Arkansas that will captivate readers as they connect to a shared past.

"Over eight years, nearly 250,000 photos were taken of migrant workers, sharecroppers, tenant farmers and laborers. About 1,000 are identified with Arkansans and about 800 were taken in the state. Of those, just over 180 are gathered thoughtfully, poignantly in Patsy G. Watkins' It's All Done Gone: Arkansas Photographs From the Farm Security Administration Collection, 1935-1943."
--Sean Clancy, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, October 2018
"By reproducing these glimpses of the past...It's All Done Gone immerses us in the Depression era. It's All Done Gone is not just worth reading, it is worth lingering over."
--David Welky, Arkansas Historical Quarterly, Spring 2019
