Reviewer Rating:


Dust to Eat: Drought and Depression in the 1930s by Michael L. Cooper is a great introduction to The Great Depression for kids and teens. 

Dust to Eat includes anecdotes from John Steinbeck and Woody Guthrie, offering readers a connection to other media, framing the era within a specific timeframe. Covering all the era's basics - drought, dust, stock market crash, depression, migration - the book takes readers through the most important aspects of the time. Including several pictures and stories from real individuals and families, Cooper has written a great piece of nonfiction for young readers.
