This is a very well written book about the horrific dusters, "snusters", and government scams. It tells, in many of the survivors's own words, how people's dreams were shattered by many droughts and gov't greed. The land they were given still held an indescribable "pull " for most, however, even though it had failed them.. The resilience of the human spirit is felt very keenly.
