Product Overview

Chloe Mays father found his wifes tactics incredulous as she dealt with their impoverished life and her own restlessness. Then came the Depression and the droughts of the Dust Bowl. It took more than their losses, near starvation, and apparent defeat to put a tear in her fathers eye. In fact, even the women in the Whitehurst family were seldom reduced to tearsconniving and rash behavior, perhaps, but not to tears! The family knew laughter and fun, balancing heartaches and poverty. Chloe May: Daughter of the Dust Bowl is based on the true story of the authors mother, Chloe May, and her familys frequent moves in, around, and out of the Oklahoma Panhandle of the 20s and 30s. Laced with historical facts of the time, Chloe May: Daughter of the Dust Bowl is a must read for younger readers wishing for a glimpse into one of Americas most difficult eras, and older readers who will identify with one familys modes of survival.
