‘Swindle’ By Steve Davis

The 1920’s saw a depression in farming following WW I. Many rural banks closed after the stock market crash lead the country into the Great Depression. Some folks were hurt not by the economic turn of events, but by more fraudulent practices. The money men use the law, but the working stiffs are the ones scraping by. ‘Swindle’ tells the tale and emotional fallout on simple working folk who pay for the sins of the money men.
