More About the Author

Albert Marrin is an award winning author of over 40 books for young adults and young readers and four books of scholarship. These writings were motivated by the fact that as a teacher, first in a junior high school in New York City for nine years and then as professor of history and chairman of the history department at Yeshiva University until he retired to become a full time writer, his paramount interest has always been to make history come alive and accessible for young people.

Winner of the 2008 National Endowment for Humanities Medal for his work, which was presented at the White House, was given "for opening young minds to the glorious pageant of history. His books have made the lessons of the past come alive with rich detail and energy for a new generation."

Dr. Marrin's numerous other awards include the Washington Post Childrens'Book Guild Lifetime Achievement Award, the James Madison Award for Lifetime Achievement, several Horn Book awards by the Boston Globe, consistently appearing on the best book of the year lists of the American Library Association, frequent recognition by Book Lists, and the Western Heritage Award for best juvenile nonfiction book presented at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame among others.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought some Dust Bowl books and DVDs for my own personal interest. I can also tie them in to social studies/history lessons for my fourth graders, though none of the books/DVDs I bought were geared toward elementary students. The book really lets you imagine the unimaginable! After reading my nonfiction books and watching Ken Burns Dust Bowl DVD, I reread Grapes of Wrath and watched that old video, which made me appreciate the fiction account even more!
