This book really makes an unreal chapter in our history very real. The hardships these settlers endured is almost unbelievalbe in our time. This girl being so excited about a feedsack dress and getting dust pneumonia are just so touching. My mom talks about living through these times and it wasn't that I didn't believe her but his book describes it in such detail you can't help but see and feel the dust everywhere and taste it in your bread.
