The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan
The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl

Baker910, January 3, 2013

This book reads like a novel. If you don't think you are a fan of non-fiction this is a great place to start. Egan gives a frightening portrayal of a period of history that, while referenced often, is not "new" to so many of us "fifty-somethings". It causes reflection on "the best laid plans of mice and men" and how even when something looks like a good idea, it can end up very differently.
