Follow Cora's journey through the Underground Railroad, a secret network of actual tracks and tunnels beneath Southern soil. As she flees from state to state, she encounters iterations of her own world at each stop. Colson Whitehead's book is a harrowing tale of one woman’s escape from the horrors of bondage while weaving in the saga of our nation from the brutal abduction of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, this powerful meditation on history is not to be missed.
@sciencewithtyus My thoughts exactly. I finished @colsonwhitehead's incredible book The Underground Railroad yesterday, and then now this today. I hate this. – source
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.
@BruceWaTheTruth @grinninfoole @Benw83084388 @conservmillen I highly recommend Timothy Egan's book The Worst Hard Time if you're interested in learning more. It's a fascinating look at catastrophe and resilience. – source
