    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

    Out of the 12 books I bought this year, this was my favorite. It's the perfect kind of history book: very informative, but written through the eyes of the people who were there. So you come away with both a detailed yet grand understanding of the Dust Bowl. It's also not one of those history books that reads like dry toast. I couldn't put it down. If you like John Steinbeck's books, you'll love this one. Tim Egan is a great storyteller. This narrarator was also great. I went out of my way to find other books he's read. But I'm not as picky as many listeners are.
