    One thought on “We Had Everything But Money”

    1. This was a delightful book to read. It is a compilation of stories, sent in by readers of Reminisce Magazine, who've lived through The Great Depression. All of the stories were encouraging and positive, something one doesn't usually encounter when reading about that time period. There were reminiscences of Christmas, weddings, cars, family gatherings, jobs and job losses and bread lines, to name a few. Many recounted how they made use of rags and old things to provide gifts to others, how they g [...]

    2. Short stories and snippets from real people who lived through the Great Depression. I was afraid it would be depressing but it turned out to be inspiring.

    3. I have stories of the Depression from my mother speaking about her mother, but it was mostly to explain why she keeps things -- this book gives so many real-life examples of people and families even thriving on a spiritual level, not being predominately negative. This book is set up like newspaper articles, fascinatingly of good news in the midst of hard times.This book helped me see what "make do" means. It is a positive ability to find solutions, make it work.It speaks of appreciating a bread [...]

    4. Personal anecdotes of the Great Depression in the United States. Includes people who lost their life savings, their jobs, their homes. . . though generally from the children's point of view, who were shielded from the full extent by their parents. Food, clothes, transportation, etc. Down to children who warned that Santa Claus was bringing more to the extremely needy and so couldn't bring them as much.

    5. This is the type of book that brings you back to your senses when you are feeling unfulfilled. Reading about the hardships these people went through makes me more grateful for what I have, and helps me feel content in my standard of living. I loved the format of the book and I loved that every story is a true story told by the person who experienced it. Amazing!

    6. Anthology of true stories of Americans surviving the Great Depression. An interesting read, but the emphasis is on how happy everyone was with no job, little food and little money. I doubt that most people who came through this period were quite so happy. It might be fun to try a few of the recipes included.

    7. I loved this book of true stories of people who lived through the Depression. What great attitudes they had and what amazing examples they were of knowing that happiness doesn't come from money.

    8. An interesting look at the Depression era and the pictures are amazing. I especially related to the feed sack dresses as I wore a few myself in the 40's.

    9. So many pictures, personal accounts and even recipes. Since everyone's experience from the Depression was different, I enjoyed the scrapbook like entries and life experiences. Very readable.

    10. I love learning about other people and their lives. This book tells you about the Great Depression through people telling their own stories and memories. Great pictures and wonderful lessons.
