This was a delightful book to read. It is a compilation of stories, sent in by readers of Reminisce Magazine, who've lived through The Great Depression. All of the stories were encouraging and positive, something one doesn't usually encounter when reading about that time period. There were reminiscences of Christmas, weddings, cars, family gatherings, jobs and job losses and bread lines, to name a few. Many recounted how they made use of rags and old things to provide gifts to others, how they grew food and shared it with neighbors and how some of them were down to their last dime when they heard a knock at the door from someone who'd brought bags of supplies. Times were very hard back then, when people had to fashion their clothing from chicken feed sacks, and they had to 'make do' but the common theme throughout was thrift and sharing with others. I found this to be very challenging and encouraging, and it makes me want to hear more of these stories... how people do more than just survive in times of great trial and need, but find joy and peace.
