Publisher's Summary

The Story of an America that no longer exists.  

What was it like to live in America 90 years ago?     

Have you ever needed to use an outhouse at two in the morning?     

Bathed in a corrugated metal tub with water heated on a wood-burning stove?     

Read at night by kerosine lamp? 

Fell to your knees in the early morning and prayed that your father might find a job that day?     

Has your mother darned socks and made clothes for you from flour sacks?     

Have you ever subsisted for days on a diet of just oatmeal?

The memoirs collected in this book tell of an America where families and neighbors relied on their faith, and came together to help each other survive America's longest and deepest economic depression. These are memories of ordinary Americans of a time now nearly forgotten. 

Today we have electricity, central heating, air conditioning, indoor plumbing, television and computers. As you listen to this book, you will find yourself asking, "Are these the things that really matter?""
