Essay: Books on Hardships

Sample Essay

Over the period of time, several books have come out on the hardships that the people went through during the great depression, but few have managed to capture the reality and the brutality with which the 1930’s dealt their blow to the people of the country. Another such book is A Crack in the World: America and the Great California Earthquake of 1906 by Simon Winchester. Where the writer has portrayed how it was more than mere economy that broke apart the country in the 1930’s.

Egan in his internationally acclaimed book, Worst Hard Time manages to do what many writers have failed to do over the past decades. He has brought to light, with statistical accuracy, the catastrophe and damage that the country went through in the 1930’s. Not simply in the perspective of the economic crunch, but in the cold hard reality of the ecological perspective. Egan shows us six different families and takes us through their moving stories of these families and adds life to his stories through the detailed accounts he gives us of the horrors of the dust bowl, from the people who lived through it and survived to lead the rest of their lives under the shadow of the dust storms in the memories of their past. No doubt, by the time the reader reaches the end of the book, one cannot help but ponder as to why man was punished with such severity by fate for something as negligibly small as trying to establish farms in the American desert.
