I thought the courage of this woman to write and share her story was amazing. She shared her life ,thoughts and insights in a very clear and thought provoking story. Jan 26, Carolyn rated it really liked it. Very good read. This book would make a good teacher read for students. It was very factual and you get a real feel for what the depression was like. An informative and well written narrative. Set in 19s rural America, Dirty Days tells the story of a young girl coming of age during the Great Depression - a time of extreme poverty and hardship.

Horrible dust storms and the daily struggle to keep the dirt and dust from drinking water, bedding, dishes, and furniture bring the details of day-to-day life into vivid reality. The portrayal of the strife faced by so many because of extreme poverty, foreclosures, hunger, and measly possessions strikes at one 19s very heart. What made this Set in 19s rural America, Dirty Days tells the story of a young girl coming of age during the Great Depression - a time of extreme poverty and hardship. What made this novel so poignant is that the author based it upon her own firsthand experiences as she and her family grappled to survive.

With the addition of fictional characters, she brings to life the hardships faced by farmers who literally watched their livelihood blow away with their topsoil when the winds howled. Norma Welty gives voice to an era of American history so that our children and grandchildren can understand all that helped shape our history.

It is a stark reminder that despite this fast-paced, technological era that we currently live in, our elders faced what seemed like insurmountable strife to provide for their family and future generations. Brava Norma Welty for taking the time to imprint your story on the minds and hearts of our youth.

    Yes, Forest Grove is off the beaten path. It was snubbed by those who built the railroads and highways. Yet while Forest Grove never has had the things that built most American cities, it had something even greater. Researched and written by authors with more than a dozen national and international awards, Walking to Forest Grove tells the story of a city like no other, but also details both the baby steps and great strides that put any American city on a path to greatness. Author: Jane Kirkpatrick.

    Born to an unavailable mother and an abusive father, Dorothea Dix longs simply to protect and care for her younger brothers, Charles and Joseph. But at just fourteen, she is separated from them and sent to live with relatives to be raised properly. Lonely and uncertain, Dorothea discovers that she does not possess the ability to accept the social expectations imposed on her gender and she desires to accomplish something more than finding a suitable mate. Yearning to fulfill her God-given purpose, Dorothea finds she has a gift for teaching and writing.

    Her pupils become a kind of family, hearts to nurture, but long bouts of illness end her teaching and Dorothea is adrift again. German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth-grade education—and a burning desire to create something beautiful. Through the years, seasonal floods continually threaten to erase her Woodland, Washington garden and a series of family tragedies cause even Hulda to question her focus.
