Front Cover
WestBow Press, Nov 15, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 224 pages

Memories of a Depression Baby paints a vivid description of surviving as a kid growing up during the Great Depression. Times were hard, but kids always found a way to amuse themselves in spite of the hard reality of the times. There was very little money to spend on entertainment, so we devised our own methods of amusement. There were no televisions, cell phones, video games, iPods, etc. Heck, we didnt even have electric typewriters, but we thought we had it all. We just didnt know any differently. Eventually, this generation put us on the moon and helped to invent many of the electronic wonders of today.
