Editorial Reviews

Experience 1900-1950 through the extraordinary lives of five American families as diverse as America itself. Not only do you learn of the personal impact of headline stories including the Depression and WWII, these families invite us into the details of everyday life--the traditions, the hardships, the simple joys. Travel to a New Mexico coal mining town, an Arizona internment camp, the cotton fields of northern Mississippi, the highways and byways of Delaware and a dirt-scratch farm in central Texas. Our American Family--oral histories beautifully depicted to make the past come alive.
