Life's Been Good

Written by Glen McLaren


Today, few can comprehend what it was like to live through the trauma of the Great Depression as a child. Grinding poverty meant that many children had to work — they had no option, for there was no social security, and an extended childhood was an unaffordable luxury. These are the speakers’ own stories in their own words, presenting a moving tribute to the courage, resourcefulness, resilience and humour of the Depression Generation.
