Summary

What Happened To The Country Culture Of What Some People Now Call "The Greatest Generation"? These pages cover a century, but focus on the years 1931 to 1966, a time of tumultuous, unprecedented change-social, cultural, and technological. The tale stretches from Depression dollar-a-day wages and the Dow at 75 to prosperity and TV. Throw in three wars. It is the history of a community of uncommon, common people that has seldom been told. They were sometimes flawed and funny, but their courage, traditions, and wisdom made a marked difference in our world. Hessie Starbuck, the heart and soul of a county and small town, listened to their triumphs and sorrows and befriended them-and the doves watched over them all. Hessie had a secret.
