James O. Pollard tells the true story of a family of 10 surviving the Great Depression, giving a moving testament to the resilience of the human spirit in his new memoir “Six Rooms and a Path: A Childhood in the Great Depression” (published by AuthorHouse).
Pollard was inspired to write “Six Rooms and a Path” after he began writing a letter to his children that described the hardships he and his family endured growing up in the Great Depression. That letter quickly became something more, and Pollard realized he had a manuscript in the making, one that later became a finished book.
In a unique blend of personal experience, historical detail and sociological perspective, “Six Rooms and a Path” recounts Pollard and his family’s experiences during one of America’s most trying times. He spares no detail in describing family trials, tribulations, expectations and values.
A must-read for anyone interested in American history, “Six Rooms and a Path” is touching, rewarding, uplifting and informative. Although he came from humble beginnings, Pollard credits those experiences with helping him achieve lifelong success.
Pollard also knows that his story will resonate with a whole new generation of readers who are struggling in today’s world to find employment, keep food on the table and pay their mortgage. “It’s related, in part, to today’s economic situation where many households are suffering,” he notes.
