Picturing a Nation

The Great Depression’s Finest Photographers Introduce America to Itself

Written by Martin W. Sandler, Illustrated by Several Photographers

Picturing a Nation is a book that informs readers about life in the Great Depression. It is mostly pictures that show what life was like for Americans in all walks of life. I love how the photographs make you respect the people in them. They also show the perseverance of humanity. It also makes a stand against racism and sexism. I wish there had been more stories about people who had been photographed. This is a great book for all ages.
