Moving Memoir of a Harvest Crew

When Bud Moody is thrown off the train near McCook, Nebraska with one thin dime to his name, his prospects don't look good. He lands a job with the meanest tenant farmer on the divide, but pity for the family and loyalty to a rag tag harvest crew lead him to risk everything to succeed. The Dry Divide transports readers to the end of the horse powered harvest in a triumphant homage to the work of the farmers and ranchers of the Midwest.

Excellent

We love this series. This book gets Ralph back to his roots and shows how much he has matured, especially considering how young he is. The narrator is always exceptional.

Fine Narration

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dry Divide to be better than the print version?

Cameron Beierle's reading of the book is very good making the audio book so much better than print

What other book might you compare The Dry Divide to and why?

I find The Dry Divide along with the others in the series very original. The morals that are found in the series are not found in today writings.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book and the series as a whole will bring happiness and sadness to the listening making for a very enjoyable experience.
