This was a truly fascinating book, since it dealt with an era in Oklahoma relatively unknown to the rest of the country and that has previously been absent from American history. The author grew up amongst Oklahoma Socialists, whose poverty and desperation pushed them into embracing Socialism as an alternative to the lives they were living. If you like stories about revolutions you'll love this one, and the author is a really terrific, likable narrator, so you'll be rooting for her all the way through. By all means, read this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is riveting. It was difficult to put down. The author gives a clear and haunting description of her life as well as what it was like to grow up an 'Okie.' I would recommend this book to anyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
