In this Eastern Sierra memoir, sisters Carol and Joan take turns
telling stories that describe their lives growing up in the small town of Independence in the 1930s. The tales of their childhood provide a glimpse into the past by recounting the common
occurrences—how their mother did laundry during the Great Depression—and the uncommon occurrences, like seeing the guard towers at Manzanar War Relocation Center. Throughout the
book the two work together to create a sense of place and time for the Eastern Sierra region.
