Summary: Praise for Down and Out in the Great Depression:
"There's nothing more deeply moving than reading the words and thus hearing the voices of the actual survivors of hard times. McElvaine has captured these voices as no one else ever has."--Studs Terkel

"Here is history written by the people who had to live it, in the U.S.A. of the 1930s. . . . A hell of a good book."--Pete Seeger

"An illuminating contribution t ...show moreo the history of a bad time half a century ago."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., New York Times Book Review

"[A] compelling, often poignant glimpse of America's mood during the Great Depression."--Jim Miller, Newsweek

"Adds an important new dimension to our knowledge of a vastly important period in American history."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World Down and Out in the Great Depression is a moving, revealing collection of letters by the forgotten men, women, and children who suffered through one of the greatest periods of hardship in American history. Mainly because of his radio talks, thousands felt they knew President Franklin Roosevelt personally and could confide in him about their troubles. Sifting through some 15,000 letters from government and private sources, Robert McElvaine has culled nearly 200 examples that best show the problems, thoughts and emotions of ordinary people during this time.
