Maurer] was a meticulous, near obsessive diarist observing the world from a personal, local and national and international level as if he had a front row seat and never failing to present the details of the day. In a very neat manner of printing with a near calligraphic style the author notes everything - trials, weather, births, deaths, automobile purchases, WPA checks ++++ Rarely will one find as comprehensive a retelling of such an important era of American history as this for the Depression.
