Ole Bodin describes how he viewed life in the United States during the Great Depression and the country’s future. He recalls waiting in soup lines and searching for work during that time. Bodin talks about hopping freight trains between Seattle and Minneapolis to look for work before discussing his employment in logging camps and how that job has evolved since the 1930s. He also reminisces about the odd jobs he did throughout the Northwest such as apple picking, cement work, and ranch work.
