Product Details

In November 1928, Frank E. Call, a salesman, moved his family from a large, comfortable home in the city to a tiny two-room shanty in an isolated railroad way station in northeastern Nevada. He was to work as a "gandydancer," a track laborer on the railroad. However, the stock market crash in October 1929 and the Great Depression that followed upset his plans. His six children adapted to living alongside the railroad tracks in a succession of primitive houses without electricity or indoor plumbing and they thought they were the luckiest kids in the world. This is their story . . . this paperback book measures 6" x 9" and has 164 pages.
