The Great Depression was a time of severe hardship, especially in the United States. With a quarter of the population out of work, families struggled to survive, obsessively saving money, food, and material to reuse or recycle. This "Depression mentality" stuck with many people for the rest of their lives. Supplemented by historical photographs, annotated quotes, and a fact-filled timeline, this engaging narrative discusses the causes and lingering effects of the Great Depression. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter encourage readers to think critically about this period and how it has impacted the world they live in today.
