Review: Dorothea Lange's photograph, Migrant Mother, of Florence Thompson created an image to forever be associated with the Great Depression. This book takes you to the day this photograph was taken and continues to explore life during the Great Depression. It includes biographical information, thoughts, and quotes from both women. A wonderful book which will help students understand the era, the photo, and the continuing impact of both.
