Monte Holm

Anyone who wants to know what it was like living through the Great Depression will enjoy reading a book titled, “Once a Hobo.” It is a biography of a man named Monte Holm (1917-2006) who details his struggles during the Great Depression as a Hobo then making a living after falling in love and getting married. Monte died a couple of years ago leaving an estate of many $$$ obtained from a very successful steel business in Moses Lake, Washington.
