Nonfiction by Timothy Egan.
This book is about the Great American Dust Bowl. It was a well-written book; although I don't normally like nonfiction, this author focused enough on people to make it much more readable than an ordinary history book. The beginning as difficult for me to read, however, knowing that all these people were DOOMED, and that everything they were doing was contributing to the coming disaster.
Still, this was a good book.
