"The incredible true story of how Americans from all walks of life weathered one of the most turbulent periods in our nation's history-the Great Depression-and emerged triumphant. Crash tells the story of the Great Depression, from the sweeping fallout of the market collapse to the more personal stories of those caught up in the aftermath. Packed with photographs, primary documents, and firsthand accounts, Crash shines a spotlight on pivotal moments and figures across ethnic, gender, racial, social, and geographic divides, reflecting many different experiences of one of the most turbulent decades in American history. Marc Favreau's meticulous research, vivid prose, and extensive back matter paints a thorough picture of how the country we live in today was built in response to the widespread poverty, insecurity, and fear of the 1930s."

"The stock market crash was only the beginning of America's descent into the Great Depression. This audiobook's chapters detail its causes, remedies, and the people most responsible for both. Narrator Oliver Wyman's slow pacing and selective emphasis allow for easy listening of a story punctuated with contemporaneous quotes and headlines, including a powerful account of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Listeners hear the patrician speech of FDR, the compassionate tones of Cabinet Secretary Frances Perkins, the accented English of migrant workers, and the diverse voices of a wide variety of troubled Americans, who illustrate the universality of misery during this period. Wyman authentically delivers the words of blacks targeted for lynching in Alabama, devastated West Virginia coal-mining families, Michigan UAW supporters, and impoverished Floridians working New Deal jobs.
