Publisher's Summary

The incredible true story of how Americans from all walks of life weathered one of the most turbulent periods in our nation's history - the Great Depression - and emerged triumphant.

Crash tells the story of the Great Depression, from the sweeping fallout of the market collapse to the more personal stories of those caught up in the aftermath. Packed with photographs, primary documents, and firsthand accounts, Crash shines a spotlight on pivotal moments and figures across ethnic, gender, racial, social, and geographic divides, reflecting many different experiences of one of the most turbulent decades in American history. Marc Favreau's meticulous research, vivid prose, and extensive back matter paints a thorough picture of how the country we live in today was built in response to the widespread poverty, insecurity, and fear of the 1930s.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"An enlightening and very readable book on a complex historical period." (Booklist)

"Favreau gives readers incisive, penetrating, at times heartbreaking prose. A dynamic read deserving of a wide audience." (Kirkus Reviews)

"A tale of heroes, villains, and redemption, Crash is the story we should all be reading - about a time when Americans were knocked down, dusted themselves off, and rebuilt a world that was safer and more secure." (Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times best-selling author of Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America)
