Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lois Phillips Hudson is recognized as a major chronicler of Americas agricultural heartland during the grim years of the Great Depression. Reapers of the Dust, now reprinted for a new generation of readers, vividly evokes that difficult time. From Hudsons childhood in North Dakota spring these unusual, moving stories of simple, joyful days, of continuing battles with hostile elements, and of a familys new life as migrant workers on the West Coast.
 
“Hudson writes with grace and beauty and an abiding understanding of the meaning of those bitter, tragic years.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“These tales are to ‘discomfit civilization, in the tradition of personal accounts of the settling of the West by such writers as Mari Sandoz, Wallace Stegner, and Walter Van Tilburg Clark.”—The Nation

About the Author

Lois Phillips Hudson was born in 1927 in Jamestown, North Dakota. Since 1969 she has taught at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her published works include numerous short stories and The Bones of Plenty, a novel, also available from the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

J Dianne, June 4, 2013 (view all comments by J Dianne)
Lois' vivid imagery and compassionate descriptions gave depth and color to this long-ago time between world wars I and II. Her descriptions of the long drought, the great economic depression and the forced migrations and class differences of the late 1920s and 1930s are compelling and help to shape my own perspective, as I experience what we all hope is the last remnants of the great recession.
