    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.

    Overall

    "The Worst Hard Time" is the first book of its type that I have listened to. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Although a very depressing subject, I couldn't wait to get back to listen to more. It made me really appreciate the struggles of Americans of all types in the early 1900's. It was also an eye opener to hear about the foolishness of the country and the shady businessmen...shows that some things remain the same. I couldn't help but draw parallels to today's environment.
