The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan

The dust storms that terrorized America's High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since, and the stories of the people that held on have never been fully told. Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times journalist and author Timothy Egan follows a half-dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region, going from sod homes to new framed houses to huddling in basements with the windows sealed by damp sheets in a futile effort to keep the dust out. Drawing on the voices of those who stayed and survived—those who, now in their eighties and nineties, will soon carry their memories to the grave—Egan tells a story of endurance and heroism against the backdrop of the Great Depression.  

The Nonfictioneers meet on the first Tuesday of the month to discuss classic and contemporary non-fiction titles. This session is a week later than usual due to the New Year's holiday.

Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table by Ruth Reichl
At an early age, Ruth Reichl discovered that "food could be a way of making sense of the world... If you watched people as they ate, you could find out who they were." Her deliciously crafted memoir is the story of a life determined, enhanced, and defined in equal measure by a passion for food, unforgettable people, and the love of tales well told. Spiced with Reichl's infectious humor and sprinkled with her favorite recipes, Tender at the Bone is a witty and compelling chronicle of a culinary sensualist's coming-of-age.

The Edwardians by Vita Sackville-West (1930, 272 pages). Handsome and moody, 19-year-old Sebastian is heir to a vast country estate. He holds a deep sense of tradition while loathing the cold, extravagant society of which he is a part. At 16, his sister Viola is more independent: a beauty who scorns every part of her inheritance. A portrait of fashionable society at the height of the era, The Edwardians reveals all that was glamorous about the period and all that led to its downfall. It was Vita Sackville-West's most successful book and an instant bestseller.

Death Comes For the Archbishop by Willa Cather (1927; app. 297 pages). In 1851, Father Latour is named vicar of New Mexico. What he finds is a vast territory of red hills and tortuous arroyos, American by law but Mexican and Indian in custom and belief. In the 40 years that follow, Latour spreads his faith in the only way he knows – gently, all the while contending with an unforgiving landscape, derelict priests, and his own loneliness.
