Any good books about 'stone soup' days?

I'd like to read some good books, preferably autobiographical, about managing a household in hard times.

For purposes of 'professional development' and generally cheering myself up about being the housewife in a single-income family, I have a craving to read good books about successful living on low resources.
Please recommend some! First-hand accounts preferred - depression-era, wartime, or just circumstantial modern hard-times.
