Review summary

The Worst Hard Time is a gripping and heartbreaking book about the Great Plains Dust Bowl, a time of great tragedy and loss. It is a reminder of the delicate balance of nature and the consequences of human activity. The author, Stephen Egan, takes an intimate and personal look at several families trying to survive tragedy. It is a cautionary tale of weather and what we do to it, but it is not a climate change polemic. It is a great book that is worth reading for its unique perspective on the Dust Bowl and its impact on the American landscape.
