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
