ESSAY: A New Deal

The address of the small clapboard house we were looking for was 4791 W County Road 924 in Mississippi County, Arkansas—just a mile or so west of the small town of Dyess. From a distance, as you turn off State Route 77 onto the washboard gravel of 924 and see the house sitting on its own, there's not much to distinguish it from other weathered, aging houses that still stand along the lonely rural roads of northeast Arkansas.
