In "Letters from the Dust Bowl, Alvin O. Turner has collected and edited Henderson's published materials and personal correspondence dating from 1908 to 1966. Turner supplements Henderson's work with a biographical essay and discerning annotations to present a complete picture of this remarkable woman.
From the Publisher:
In May 1936 Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace wrote to Caroline Henderson to praise her contributions to American "understanding of some of our farm problems." His comments reflected the national attention aroused by Henderson's articles, which had been published in Atlantic Monthly since 1931. Even today, Henderson's articles - notably "Letters from the Dust Bowl" - are frequently cited for her vivid descriptions of the dust storms that ravaged the Plains.|Caroline Henderson was a Mount Holyoke graduate who moved to Oklahoma's panhandle to homestead and teach in 1907. This collection of letters and articles written by Henderson between 1908 and 1966 presents an intimate portrait of a woman's life in the Great Plains. Her writing mirrors her love of the land and the literature that sustained her as she struggled for survival.
