The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan

68 pages in and I'm in love!

  • Maureen Stroman

    I liked it, but the author is a little too swarmy.

  • Suellyn Cashia

    I actually worked there in the late 70's when it was still the only hospital in the continental U.S. that treated Hansen's (leprosy) Disease patients.....the U.S. Public Health Hospital granted me permission to work on my Master's thesis research onsite....not a great lover of the book but did purchase it and scanned through it.....the author doesn't come through as believable or authentic to me.

”A heart warming account of life as a midwife, from Maria deciding to become a midwife at 15 after her youngest brother was born to fainting during the first three labours she attended as a student. The journey sees Maria transform into an assured and accomplished midwife.

My midwife suggested this book since I'm not going to be taking any birthing classes. She warned that she's "very granola" (she was right, total hippie), and to take what you want to and leave the rest. Despite skipping a lot, it is very informative and fascinating! It does make you feel empowered about labor and delivery because she explains so much. I'd suggest it to any mom-to-be.

Historic read of the dust bowl
