Builder Of Men: Life In The C.C.C. Camps Of New Hampshire

Draves, David D.
(Peter Randall, 1992)

The Civilian Conservation Corps was the most respected of the New Deal programs in the Depression era. Over 11,000 N.H. young men between the ages of 17 & 28 were among those who worked in the camps. They were engaged in reforestation, construction & emergency activities. The work built up their self-esteem & provided money for their families, while improving the nation's environment. Their story is told through interviews & written words of the men themselves & those who administered the camps.
