The Great Depression affected generations of families. This is the case for Stan Hyatt, who grew up in the North Carolina mountains. He is proud of his heritage, and particularly his grandmother, who sustained herself and her family through very tough economic times. This lesson includes teacher’s guides as well as the oral history audio excerpts and transcripts.
