A warm and touching first hand experience encompassing history and sociology in one of America's most trying times ... the Great Depression, this book is poignant, factual, and a very comfortable read. The personal story goes deep into family trials, tribulations, tragedies, expectations and values. It's a must read for anyone interested in American history, bygone sociology, personal history, and just plain interesting facts. It is touching, rewarding, uplifting and informative. An extraordinarily humble beginning, with minimal physical comforts and sustenance from birth through teenage years, did not hamper lifelong successes of the author. On the contrary, they are credited with promoting them.
