This is from NE author Mari Sandoz. She wrote this back in the '30s with the depression going on and was basically an attach on Lincoln, NE where she was living and working at university at the time. She does attack the moneyed and the movers and shakers as not helping out the poor or working class. As far as reading though, was slow and a lot of similar names so confusion about which person and what was going on was a problem. Because it was tough to get started, this book took probably took me almost 2 months to finish. Glad I read it, I have really liked other books by Mari Sandoz but this one not so much.
Mari Sandoz books are keepers for me so I will be keeping it at least for now.
