Humane and compassionate, meticulously researched, and full of stories and anecdotes, The Hungry Years tells the story of the Great Depression through the eyes of the people who lived it.

Less concerned with the power brokers in Washington than with the daily struggles of ordinary people at the grassroots across America, it draws on little-known oral histories, memoirs, local press, and scholarly monographs to capture the voices of men and women in a time of extreme crisis. The result is a richly detailed narrative that traces the stages of the disaster chronologically without losing touch with the personal wounds it inflicted or the ways in which people responded.
