Editorial Reviews


[A] thoughtful, even wise, book. "Journal of American History"


This book deserves credit for the boldness of its vision, the audacity of its assertions, the imagination with which it searches out and uses evidence, and the creativity of its thematic organization. Farmers and small producers in the twentieth century have not received their historical due, and Catherine Stock's study should help right that imbalance.--South Dakota History

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I learned some things from this book, but it does amble on like a boring textbook sometimes. The stories of the the families were very interesting. My great-grandma's cows in N.E. SD ate cockleburs during the depression, and trying to hit water during a well drill was distressing.
