Summary
During the Great Depression, the impoverished residents of Canton, Ohio were offered ten dollars to pen their tales of woe. Seventy-five years later, author Ted Gup came across these moving stories and made it his goal to chronicle the families' subsequent generations. Here, Gup's sweeping narratives embody the struggles faced by the quintessential American family over the last several decades
Summary
The author explains how the discovery of a cache of letters revealed his grandfather's offer of cash gifts to seventy-five families in distress in Depression-scarred Canton, Ohio, in 1933, and explores the profound effects the gifts had on their recipients
