Summary
Journey back to a time of drugstore soda fountains, penny candy, and ten-cent movies. Visit an era when people enjoyed sitting on the front porch, visiting with neighbors while the children played "kick the can." Yes, in spite of the Great Depression, people could be happy and resourceful. Breon describes how, unaware that there was any other lifestyle, she lived a creative life in a suburb near Chicago
