E. J. Kurowski's New Book, 'Hard Times; 1930-1950' is a Heartrending Narrative That Looks Back Into the Struggles and Events of a Family During the Great Depression Era

Recent release "Hard Times; 1930-1950" from Covenant Books author E. J. Kurowski is a poignant memoir that brings the readers to the overwhelming toils of a family and how they viewed these circumstances as "normal", not knowing any different.

E. J. Kurowski, a retired teacher in physics and electronics for forty-two years in the Coeur d’Alene panhandle in Idaho, has completed his new book, “Hard Times; 1930-1950”: a compelling account chronicling the lives of the author’s ancestors in their nostalgic days.

“From bits and pieces of this story over the years, I gather that Dad, on the previous day in Iron River, had arranged for a hitched ride out leaving in the morning and had Mother bake the extra bread. It was likely an empty truck that went out about thirty some miles to a T in the road with a side road to a distant farm. Then we would be on our own; the cold morning wind-chill in the back would have been an ordeal even if Mother and infant rode up front. Dad must have had faith in being able to evoke enough sympathy from passing.

traffic to get us to Green Bay. He probably had not realized what very little traffic there was during War time and what there was had little chance of the right direction combined with enough room.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, E. J. Kurowski’s new book is a mesmerizing tale that depicts a life filled with memorable experiences worth looking into for wisdom and insight.

This book takes the readers on a journey with six youngsters as they tackle many fateful moments, beginning with the first meeting of a life-changing era—the Great Depression in 1929. From the occasional running of 'hootch' into Chicago, to their dad hiding mobsters from gangland in a tunnel from their house to the barn, or even John Dillinger giving sister Eunice a twenty for Lollipops; in those early dust bowl 'thirties’ youngsters were far too young or were yet unborn to even contemplate what 'normal' life really was.

Readers can purchase “Hard Times; 1930-1950” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
