Abstract:

The book consists of excerpts from interviews of senior members of State College Friends Meeting. The narrators who lived through the Great Depression tell of their difficult childhood -- and yet in most cases one they regarded as happy. Some of the conscientious objectors during World War II tell of life in Civilian Public Service camps; others speak of using nonviolent methods with mental patients, while still others relate stories of participation in "human guinea pig" experiments. Of those who did relief work after the war overseas, probably the most exciting tales are told by the four who worked with the Friends Ambulance Unit in China, located near to where the Nationalists and the Communists were fighting.-- Publisher's description.
