This book is the third in the series, Memories of Hoosier Homemakers, which arises from an ongoing oral history project. This book deals with two of the subjects discussed in the collected interviews. The first is changes in transportation, as observed by the narrators, and the second is the impact of world events on the lives and values of the family.
