Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"You know what the Depression did to you? It made you a criminal, an outcast. You cheated, you lied, you got by, you survived any-old-how . . ."

It's 1930s America, and the Depression has affected the lives of millions. Poverty is rife and some families are starving. Fourteen-year-old Molly has no one to rely on but herself. She has to find work--any kind of work. But much of the nation is unemployed, and competition for jobs is stiff. Riding the freight trains in search of a job and a square meal, Molly sees the misery of the Great Depression at first hand.

"Survivorsis an unusual collection of fictional stories based on historical fact. Central to these stories are young people caught up in the conflicts and disasters of their time. Experience through their eyes the day-to-day hardships and dangers they encountered. Line illustrations capture the atmosphere of each story.
