    Covering the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression, the author provides short chapters on cultural and historical topics While the scope of the book is admirable, the content is too superficial for a middle school reader to glean any real understanding of the time frame and its politics Within ea...

    This was a solid, introductory look at the Great Depression It looked at the causes, how different people were affected, and how people lived There were a lot of good photographs, 21 activities, and great resources at the end The fact that it was only 144 pages was also good.
