Living Off The Land
Billy Ray Cardwell, left, and his wife Nellie spike tobacco during a hot October afternoon on Jerry Hudnell's farm in Warren County northeast of Bowling Green, Ky. The Cardwells are tenant farmers living with 8 other family members in a patched-together, 140 year old home on Ridge Road. The family makes less than $7,500 per year.
