Farming on a Mountain Side. Showing how the people of Montenegro, the rockiest, most mountainous country in Europe, have to build terraces for their gardens. The hillside from a distance presents the appearance of a huge flight of steps. Upon these small patches which must be worked by hand, the Montenegrin must raise enough to support his family. During the war the man power was reduced so the American Red Cross, upon bringing relief to the country after the armistice, found the majority of the women and children under fed. Note the overturned truck at the right. It tells the story of a load of Red Cross supplies that never reached their destination, the car sliding off the road
