The book is very textbookish at times with facts and details, but in the end the scope of what was accomplished by the CCC and WPA is inspiring.
It also shows that while many areas were resistance to the government intervention in the beginning, most areas were clammering for the support when they saw the changes that were occurring in the early implementation areas.
This is almost a forgotten generation and something that people who oppose governmental spending do not want you to know.
