Description: The Great Depression was well underway in West Virginia before the stock market crash of November 1929, and lasted until the coming of war in 1941. During this long decade the state faced some of the worst conditions in the country.

Jerry Thomas demonstrates that the state's leaders -- like their counterparts elsewhere -- often ignored or only grudgingly accepted the programs and initiatives of the federal government. Ironically, Republican governor William Conley believed that increases in both state and federal relief spending were imperative, while his Democratic successors, Herman Kump and Homer Holt, saw the New Deal as threatening state interests.

In tracing the responses of the people and government of West Virginia during the Great Depression, Thomas not only deals with politics and institutions but also tells the broader story of what happened to ordinary people as they sought order for their lives.
