Holes in my Shoes: One Family Survives the Great Depression Alice Breon Author
Shop on Barnes & Noble


Journey back eighty years to a time of drugstore soda fountains, penny candy, homemade root beer, and ten-cent movies. Visit an era when people enjoyed such simple pleasures as sitting on the front porch, visiting with neighbors in the evening while the children played “kick the can” in a street devoid of traffic. What was life like in a world that had no television, cell phones, answering machines, computers, DVDs, electronic games, microwaves? Were those people happy? Yes, in spite of the Great Depression, they were happy and resourceful. Follow one family as it lives through a time in America’s history when everyone’s future was uncertain; when everyone cared and shared.
