Praise

“In a wonderfully evocative portrait of the Depression generation, Robert Collins has captured the sweet innocence and defiant pride of Canadians who grew up in the Dirty Thirties, won the war, and spawned post-war prosperity and the baby boomers. It’s a joyous read.”
–Knowlton Nash

“Bears the mark of a veteran journalist.”
Globe and Mail

“Evoking a thousand memories, Robert Collins has woven a rich and vari-coloured tapestry of the poignant and courageous lives of many who were there. For those who were not, these stories will perhaps bring appreciation and understanding of the generation and the time that was.”
–Betty Kennedy

“Robert Collins has helped make these people, who gave so much, more permament in Canada’s collective memory. For them and for him I’m grateful.”
Financial Post

“Through moving interviews with people across Canada, [Collins] develops an overview of a generation.”
Kitchener-Waterloo Record

“This is Canadian history in an accessible and entertaining package.”
Saskatoon Star-Phoenix

“Immensely enjoyable.…Heartily recommended.”
Halifax Daily News
