Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I'm Evelyn. I am 6 years old. I live on my farm with my mom, dad, brother, and sister. I like living on the farm because we have a lot of animals.
  • This is my family. We live in the house that is behind us. My little brother's name is Samuel and my sister's name is Frances. They are almost 3 years old.
  • The Dust Bowl happened and quickly following that was the Great Depression. We woke up one morning to our farm on fire, so we lost everything. Thankfully we all made it out safe.
  • After the fire and during the Great Depression, we had no money. We moved to the Hoovervilles and lived in a small hut. The conditions were very hard to live in. My dad caught pneumonia from someone else who was living close by. 1 week later he died.
  • After my dad died, we were very sad. It was hard for my mom because she had to raise 3 kids on her own. We tried going to a soup kitchen to eat, but they told us that they were already full with people and had no more room.
  • A couple of weeks later, my mom found a job at the post office. We went to school while she was working because she wanted us to have a good education. My mom ended up working here for a while because she enjoyed it.
