Selina joe hutchel was born in a cabin that has 2 rooms, one small window and a dirt floor.her parents built the small house in one day with the help of friends and family. Selina joe began to talk when she was 1 year old. By the time she was seven, her parents could answer none of her questions. Selina joe’s big black eyes were full of curiosity, but her mind stayed hungry. Her parents sent her to school for 6 months. They took her out as soon as she could read and write her parents had never learned. selina joe had to work on the farm. She planted corn and sweet potatoes in a hard red earth. She fed the cows and built fences. She cleaned the cabin and chopped wood. She did all the cooking and washed the clothes. Her parents spent most of the time with uncles aunts and cousins who lived nearby. All the hutchels were like selina joe’s parents. They couldn’t read or write, they didn’t like to work and they never took bath.
One Sunday, when selina joe was 16 years old, her parents took her to the town of east view. As they waled down the street, selina joe heard someone behind whisper:‘those are part of the hutchel family! They are all dirty lazy people. They never work!’
A few days later, selina went back alone to east view. Whe went into one of the stores, it was only a simple country store, but seemed to selina joe, it’s like a wonderful place. She looked at silk ribbons and soft leather shoes. Selina joe had never owned a pair of shoes, or a sild ribbon. In the back of the store, she found a dress. It was made of white cotton ad little small red squares on it. Selina joe couldn’t stop touching the dress, she asked the store owner how much the dress cost, 5 dollars he said. But I’ll sell it to you for three. That evening, after dinner, she told her father about the dress.
