The Worst Hard Time

Author Timothy Egan
This is a book of true stories about the lives of several families during the dust bowl years in the Texas panhandle, Oklahoma panhandle, Colorado, Kansas and a little bit of southwestern Nebraska. It tells why and how the dust bowl years developed, as well as how it affected those in the "thick" of it. Walter Cronkite described this book as, "This is can't-put-it-down history."
I learned a lot about that part of our history. Reads quickly.

I don't read a lot of non-fiction but this one looks like it would be very good. I do enjoy history.
