Told from the point of view of a young boy, this account shows how a family �faced the 1930s head on and lived to tell the story.� It is the story of growing up in southern Illinois, specifically the Marion, area during the Great Depression. But when it was first published in 1972 the book proved to be more than one writer�s memories of depression-era southern Illinois.�P
