Interview with Harold Engstrom
QUESTION 28
INTERVIEWER:

JUST A QUESTION OF, WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A SOUTHERNER?

Harold Engstrom:

What makes a southerner? Well, I guess, just growing up in a region that is a little different. And, and you, the southerner usually stays in the south. He, his grandparents were here, his parents were here. So you have your roots with you constantly, and you relate to them. Your closer ties to the family, normally, and closer ties to the land, and there's more of the land. We're not as densely populated, Arkansas, a fine, wonderful state, but just barely over two million people. And it gives plenty of room. We enjoy the room. We enjoy the land. We, we really, actually have our roots in the soil.
