Forced to take shelter inside a dingy cafe with a band of quirky strangers, the Dowdens soon realize that life in Oklahoma may not be as easy as they had hoped.
After the family finally settles in their two-room workers' shanty, one hardship piles up after another as they battle spider bites, rancid water, strange rashes, loneliness, and death. Left with no choice but to bravely persevere through the never-ending drought and dust, Molly and her family soon discover a fortitude they never knew they had. In this historical tale based on true events, a young girl embarks on a coming-ofage journey where she and her loved ones must nobly fight to survive the Great Depression and the Oklahoma Dust Bowl.

Book review: 'The Dirty Days' by Norma Welty
Showing Rating details. Author: Deborah Hopkinson. Forest Grove always has been off the beaten path, so much so that many of the earliest settlers had to walk to town.

Even an American President had to hoof it for a visit. Forest Grove always has been a little offbeat as well. It took 50 years of legal battles to build a working sewer, and years to legalize liquor, with the booze battles spilling out of the courtroom and erupting in an arson war. 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.
