Reflections From The Great Depression and WWII offers a series of short
stories, recorded facts and quotes encompassing the lives and times of
people who lived during the 1930's and 1940’s. Much of the information
comprised in this book is based on a series of many one-on-one
interviews with friends, relatives, neighbors and acquaintances that
lived during that period. Interviews were conducted over a five year
interval from 2008-2012. This book was created and constructed to be an
“Armchair Book”. In other words, it’s perfect for a grandpa, a
grandma, mom or dad to peruse and read with members of the younger
generation. After all, today’s youth may have many questions about a
time when most folks had a lot less material possessions. Yet even with
less, many seemed very happy back then as they enjoyed a time when life
was much simpler! Woven within the contents of this book is a collection
of little known facts that can be easily confirmed with an internet
search. Some of these facts are intertwined together with the interviews
to form a surprise package full of new and fresh historical
information. That is why it is so very exciting and gratifying to
present this information to readers both young and old, and from all
walks of life.
