Description

This book includes five independent accounts of what it was like to grow up as a child in Valley County Idaho in early years. One account (Sayre) is from the early settlement period in 1904. The other four accounts are of childhood during the Great Depression years (1929-1941). This latter group also represents life in rural areas and small towns across the United States during this critical period of U.S. history. Each account provides a very personal insight into the many facets of childhood at that time (as contrasted with contemporary children in America). Accounts range from lyrical and haunting (Sayre), to the memorable events of boyhood in a time when a child was free to explore without constant adult supervision.
