    The dust storms that terrorized America's High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since, and the stories of the people that held on have never been fully told. Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist and author Timothy Egan follows a half-dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region.

    "Good not riveting"
    Overall

    I don't know why this book of all should constantly make me nod off, but I was neither impressed by the narration nor the interweaving of plots and history. I didn't think it measured up to the billing "epic tale of hope and endurance" etc. More for historians and history buffs in my opinion.
