The Worst Hard Time

The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl

Timothy Egan

This historical reportage delves into one of the most iconic and catastrophic chapters in American history. The dust storms that ravaged the High Plains during the Depression era were like nothing ever seen before, and Timothy Egan's critically acclaimed debut account spares no detail in chronicling the rise and fall of the region, following a dozen families through the worst of it all. With stunningly evocative writing and heartfelt stories about heroism and perseverance in the face of disaster, this cautionary tale serves as a must-read for anyone interested in the dangers of disrupting nature.

@JulieZebrak Try "The Worst Hard Times" by Timothy Egan -- fabulous book.      fuente
Of the 27 books I've read so far this year, The Worst Hard Time by @nytegan is the most powerful. Searing account of the worst environmental disaster in human history (so far), the Dust Bowl. When we mess with nature, we get walloped. Five stars from me      fuente
