The book is a slice of life of the days of yore. Her memoir is comprised of two elements that make it an ideal gift item. It is comprised of both art in the beautiful photographs and history in the telling of the story of what it was like to live during the Great Depression. The book is a memoir that tells the story of the trials and tribulations her family went through in upstate New York and San Antonio during the 1930's. The book is filled with lots of old, black and white photos. The photos and the writing are the true art of the book. The book illustrates not only in words, but also in family photos what it was like to live back then. The photos offer a candid view into the life of the author and her extended family. Art is evident in her writing and her ways of expressing herself in words so eloquently that help the reader visualize every aspect of the story. This book comes at a perfect time for it parallels the economy now with people losing their livelihood.
