An inspiring account of America at its worst-and Americans at their best-woven from the stories of Depression-era families who were helped by gifts from the author's generous and secretive grandfather.
Also, I felt the writer was enamored of this journey into discovering his grandfather's life's secrets, but, I thought this could more realisticly be portrayed to the public in a magazine article or a much shorter book. Information in the book reminded me of some things I'd heard as a child such as an aunt who reminded us sometimes that she and her siblings were tickled to get so much as a pair of socks for Christmas. Drawing on his unique find and his award-winning reportorial gifts, Ted Gup solves a singular family mystery even while he pulls away the veil of eight decades that separate us from the hardships that united America during the Depression.
