 The Worst Hard Time

by Timothy Egan

"John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath has long been synonymous with the Dust Bowl in the American mind. But ... Egan tells the lost story of 'the people who stayed behind, for lack of money or lack of sense, the people who hunkered down out of loyalty or stubbornness, who believed in tomorrow because it was all they had in the bank.'" -- John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
