We Didn't Have Much, But We Sure Had Plenty: Stories of Rural Women - Sherry Thomas

We didn't have much but we had plenty, stories of rural women by Sherry Thomas
Various stories of how some women survived in rural times for would be farmers.
How one woman placed an ad and set out to hear their stories. During the depression many saw themselves as doers, not talkers.
Many thought they should've been born a man-to help with the chores. Many stated they helped on the farm but they were the ones actually doing the work.
Topics on marriage, birthing, tending to sick animals, sheep herding, lobstering, canning, working the lands.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
