Following the stock market crash in 1929, the United States found itself in the throes of the Great Depression. While many people found jobs with newly created social programs, most farmers chose to stay home and work their farms. They were challenged by flood and drought disasters, but few gave up. Instead the depression brought out their thriftiness, faith and ingenuity. Adversities strengthened them, their love of God sustained them, and they had a lot of fun.

Ruth Myer remembers happy times during the Depression. As she states, "My childhood was happy and free from worry, as my life revolved around my mother and father, our pets and farm animals. We had enough food to eat, clothes to wear and a feast of books was available at the local library." Readers young and old will enjoy experiencing the Great Depression as seen through the eyes of a young girl growing up during that time.

About the Author:

Ruth Myer was not only raised on a farm, but married a farmer as well. She and her husband, LeConte, considered a farm the ideal atmosphere to raise their eight children. Although the children have all grown and left home and LeConte has retired, they still continue to enjoy the rural life and their twenty grandchildren.

Ruth has taught piano and organ lessons for 45 years and is presently the Organist-Choir Director at the Interlaken Reformed Church.
