In sharing memories of her humble childhood, Doris Hermundstad Liffrig reminds us all that material possessions and creature comforts are not necessary for a happy home.
Growing Up Rich in a Poor Family is written for young people but will appeal to readers of all ages. Children will enjoy stories about Doris and her brothers, who entertained themselves for hours in make-believe worlds. Today's parents will wonder how this pioneering family managed to enjoy life with no money and few luxuries. And seniors will travel back in time reading "Mama! I See a Tramp Coming Over the Hill," and recall the hopelessness that plagued people during the Great Depression.
