|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.
