The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl - Timothy Egan ExhaustingSoberingDepressingInstructiveHaunting Interesting TimelyGrindingSurprisingPainfulImportantNow, what's up with the subtitle? If it were really "The Untold Story," wouldn't it just be a book full of blank pages? Shouldn't it be "The Previously Untold Story"? And why don't publishers ever ask me for my opinions on these things? This calls for some serious pouting. You should still read the book though. Outstanding research and thorough presentation with lessons for us in our 21st-Century short-sighted resource exploitation mode.
