New Deal at the Grass Roots: Programs for the People in Otter Tail County, Minnesota

In the first case study of its kind, Tweton explores the New Deal in one Minnesota county: how programs operated, what impact they had on communities and people, and how people responded. The story he tells is based on oral history interviews, township and village records, files of government papers, and county newspapers.
