Child of The Depression: Growing up in the 30's and 40's

 
9781442177468: Child of The Depression: Growing up in the 30's and 40's

Many, many years ago-when I was a little girl-I would travel with my parents to the towns where they grew up. They would point out various houses and recall places and people they had known and things they had done. My reaction ranged from complete disinterest to not even listening. After all, I'd heard it all so many times. I seldom asked questions. Now everyone of that generation is gone. There's no one to whom I can address my questions. There is so much more I wish I had asked them about the way they lived-the way things were. So that's what I'm doing here. Remembering the fact that my parents' history is-sadly-beyond recall, I will try to tell you the answers before you even ask the questions- about the past that I can recall and what it was like growing up during The Depression and The War Years. This is not a 'memoir'. It is a history. It's my story and the story of an era, as well. Perhaps, after reading it, you'll feel as though you've visited a different time and place.
