An interesting little story from the Dust Bowl

Quick little book. It lacks in a lot of detail. It, perhaps too, is lacking in any critical analysis of the subject. The story has in an interesting connection to Steinbeck and the Grapes of Wrath. It is interesting to see what one man, given enough authority, and with enough will, can do, despite the great obstacles but in the way. This is also a reminder of a more shameful part of California's past.
