Throughout America, however, conditions were anything but peaceful. Strikes, breadlines, fear, uncertainty, and an increasing unemployment situation were the order of the day.A ray of hope, in the form of the campaign promises of the newly elected President Franklin D.

Roosevelt, left the nations citizens wondering what might be in store for the immediate future. Putting the unemployed back to work would, hopefully, put America back upon a more solid economic footing. For the remainder of the decade, Roosevelts New Deal and its multitude of federal jobs programs, helped to alleviate some of the crippling economic conditions of the Great Depression.The most popular of such programs was the Spring of 1933 until the early months of World War II, the CCC put a cumulative total of three and one-half million persons to work.

The program not only rebuilt and preserved Americas natural resource base, it also rebuilt and shaped the lives of its participants.This book goes beyond the mere detailing of facts gleaned from the written records concerning the events of that time. It brings into focus on a personal level, through the memories of some of those who lived, ate, and slept the Great Depression ad the Civilian Conservation Corps, what life was like on an individual and family basis.
