A Little Rock Boyhood by A Cleveland Harrison
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


History books provide the statistics and the big picture of the Great Depression, but what did any of that mean for a family just trying to make it through those years? A. Cleveland Harrison s A Little Rock Boyhood provides that viewpoint in this evocative memoir as he captures what Little Rock was like for him as a child in the 1930s. The Harrison family s experiences and those of their extended family and neighbors bring the tough economic times down to the individual level. The youngest Harrison is an able reporter, relating the memories of an observant though naive child. All was not grim, though, if you were a kid, and Harrison describes those happy times. He remembers his life in the residential neighborhoods of downtown Little Rock when a child could grow up in difficult times without becoming difficult. This book is an insightful look back at a time, a place, and a childhood."
