Farming the Dust Bowl


Product Description
Product Details


"One of the best books ever to appear about Dust Bowl days . . .not only because it is well written, but also because its author was one of those plains farmers who fought the losing fight. . . . A highly recommended 'inside' account."--Robert Athearn, author of The Coloradans and High Country Empire
"Although factual and calm in style, this book is as moving as John Steinbeck's novels."--The New Republic"Easily one of the most important books that has dealt with the dust bowl and its problems. Nowhere else can be found such penetrating and dispassionate comments, free from political bias, on the actual workings of governmental agencies in the attempt to deal with cumulative disaster to one-sixth of our national area. And what is said has bearing on problems far beyond the limits of the Great Plains."--The Saturday Review of Literature"The author has a story to tell that is of first importance to all Americans. . . . [A story of the] drought and high winds [that] brought permanent ruin and tragedy . . . to a region as large as France, Germany, and most of the British Isles."--American Library Association Booklist
