Lois Phillips Hudson is recognized as a major chronicler of America's agricultural heartland during the grim years of the Great Depression. "Reapers of the Dust," now reprinted for a new generation of readers, vividly evokes that difficult time. From Hudson's childhood in North Dakota spring these unusual, moving stories of simple, joyful days, of continuing battles with hostile elements, and of a family's new life as migrant workers on the West Coast. "Hudson writes with grace and beauty and an abiding understanding of the meaning of those bitter, tragic years."--"Chicago Tribune" "These tales are to 'discomfit civilization, ' in the tradition of personal accounts of the settling of the West by such writers as Mari Sandoz, Wallace Stegner, and Walter Van Tilburg Clark."--"The Nation"
