An epic of a poor humble family’s survival. A poignant portrayal of a beautiful woman from the northern Wisconsin countryside and a man from the city who met at the end of World War I, fell in love and married. It is about raising a large family in sometimes destitute situations, and about how alcoholism affected their life, the failures of Prohibition, and a father driven to desperate measures. It is about their hard work ethic, and how finally owning property gave them a new determination to make something of their life. You will be transported back to a time of country life before electricity, indoor plumbing, washing machines, or tractors, through the years of the Great Depression and the Dustbowl, and about how the Works Project Administration rescued families from a life of total poverty, about the emergency shipyards of World War II providing a living wage to unskilled laborers, and a family apart, with life in a logging camp, and the building of a new town.
