1: This book is dedicated to all the people who had a rough time during the Great Depression.
2: The Great Depression was caused by many factors. These factors were the Stock Market Crash of 1929, bank failures, reduction in purchasing across the board, the American Economic Policy with Europe, and drought conditions.
4: The Great Depression lasted from 1930 until 1939.
7: Life during the Great Depression was difficult for many. Unemployment was widespread. Many people lost their life savings due to bank failures so they had no money to buy things. Some had to sell whatever they owned in order to buy food. Drought made it hard for farmers to raise crops for both humans and other animals.
9: Not only American citizens but people in other countries were affected by the Great Depression. In the U.S. jobs were hard to find, so many people who wanted to work couldn't. Many Europeans had invested in the U.S. stock market and lost money.
10: The Great Depression ended because of the start of World War II. Interestingly, doing nothing also helped end the Great Depression.
