Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Here in photos and frequently in their own words are the highlights of the CCC in Michigan. Boys from poor families went off to places like Isle Royale to keep from starving, to learn job and life skills and to help send home money to their destitute families. Well edited. Highly recommended. Great quotes from the CCC men.

40 years ago the family took a summer vacation to Isle Royale National Park. When we arrrived my father took me to a block of concrete in the ground at one of the campsites and said "Here's where the mess hall steps were when I was in the CCC's". I had no idea. It's a great book - long overdue.

My 100 year old dad worked in the camps. This book gives me an idea of what his younger days were like.
