When I Was Small… Growing Up In East Kootenay (1920-1935)


A very personal look at how one East Kootenay family survived the Great Depression. Ranging from Roosville on the International border, through Ta Ta Creek to Invermere, B.C., Alta Goodwin’s story documents the struggle of her family. This is a woman’s voice and a woman’s view of the Depression. Alta talks about the pressures on the family, the constant wear and tear on her mother as child followed child – six in ten years. This story is compelling and written with feeling and dignity. Author: Alta Hellmen, as told to Fee Hellmen
