Anthology of true stories of Americans surviving the Great Depression. An interesting read, but the emphasis is on how happy everyone was with no job, little food and little money. I doubt that most people who came through this period were quite so happy. It might be fun to try a few of the recipes included.
So many pictures, personal accounts and even recipes. Since everyone's experience from the Depression was different, I enjoyed the scrapbook like entries and life experiences. Very readable.
I love learning about other people and their lives. This book tells you about the Great Depression through people telling their own stories and memories. Great pictures and wonderful lessons.
