 About the Book 

Hunger, poverty, foreclosures, drought, horrific storms, hard work (if it could be found), and disappointment were routine during the Great Depression of the 1930s.Tom Kostas, a greek immigrant, his wife, Agnes, and their four small children enduredMoreHunger, poverty, foreclosures, drought, horrific storms, hard work (if it could be found), and disappointment were routine during the Great Depression of the 1930s.Tom Kostas, a greek immigrant, his wife, Agnes, and their four small children endured this together on their small farm in Kansas.Many people in these difficult circumstances gave up and left for California or elsewhere, searching for better lives as they escaped the hardships of the dust bowl. This is a history of those who did not, or could not, escape to supposedly better circumstances.This is a story of how the Kostas family, and others, dealt with adversity, each in their own way. Some showed great strength and kindness, while others showed selfishness and even cruelty. It is an insightful and entertaining study of human nature, of struggle, coping, endurance, and survival.The events in this book did occur- however, they were compressed into a few days for the sake of the story. Peoples names have been changed, but geographical information is accurate.
