“We Can Take It”, first published in 1935, is an early history of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC, considered one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s most successful New Deal programs, operated from 1933 to 1942 and provided natural resource-related work for young men, ages 18-25, during the Great Depression. In the program’s nine years, 3 million young men participated in the CCC. In return for their work, the men received training in a variety of skills, living quarters, clothing, and food, and a small wage of $30 a month ($25 of which had to be sent home to their families). The accomplishments of the CCC remain evident today in the nation’s national forests, parks, roads and trails. Included are 10 pages of pen and ink illustrations.
