About the Book

Depression Daze is a recollection of Mr. Wills’ childhood during the Great Depression, the hardships during these times, and the many adventures that he encountered during his youth in Tennessee, Florida and Georgia.

These were the days of hoboes, gangsters, social prejudice, and grinding poverty. World War II started and ended during these times, and Davie went from a small boy to a young man, from a well to do upper middle class family to a one-parent family held together by a strong mother. Depression Daze takes one on a roller coaster ride through the late thirties and the early forties.
