“Great book. I buy a lot of them and give them to students, grandchildren and anyone else I can. I wish there was a way to get some for free for us starving underpaid teachers.” By Kevin D Baron
“I read this when I was a kid and really enjoyed it, and I wanted to know if it was as good as I remembered. It was actually better, and does a good job of describing what the Great Depression was like for the average person.” By Garden Gnome
