Summary
Takes a look at the decade in America when optimism was high and confidence was strong and presents American history through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans. Representing all classes, dozens of occupations, and all regions of the country, this book includes 34 family profiles -- their life at home, at work, and in their community -- with lots of photos and images of the time, including an immigrant just learning the ropes, a physician whose family lived a comfortable middle class life in Southern comfort, and an heiress to a family fortune
