FAMILY CRISIS

An unusual turn to the family chronicle school of writing, in an authentic story of one family, their ups and downs, with the head solely interested in maintaining his own individuality rather than linking himself with big business, and whose defeat at the turn of the century, seemed symbolic. The united family front makes possible the conquering of a seemingly impossible situation; they muddle through, in spite of real poverty, trouble from every angle, the business on the ragged edge, schooling uncertain, food, clothes and housing problems acute. Although the period is a past one, the problems ring a note of reality that seems timely today.
