Dust to eat : drought and depression in the 1930's by Michael L Cooper( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1930s in America will always be remembered for twin disasters-the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Michael L. Cooper takes readers through this tumultuous period, beginning with the 1929 stock market crash that ushered in the Great Depression and continuing with the severe drought in the Midwest, known as the Dust Bowl. He chronicles the everyday struggle for survival by those who lost everything, as well as the mass exodus westward to California on fabled Route 66. The crisis also served as a turning point in American domestic policy, prompting the establishment of programs, such as welfare and Social Security, that revolutionized the role of the federal government. Vivid personal anecdotes from figures such as John Steinbeck and Woody Guthrie, and an extensive selection of photographs by Dorothea Lange and others, illuminate the individuals who faced poverty, illness, and despair as they coped with this extraordinary challenge.

Remembering Manzanar : life in a Japanese relocation camp by Michael L Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses firsthand accounts, oral histories, and essays from school newspapers and yearbooks to tell the story of the Japanese Americans who were sent to live in government-run internments camps during World War II. Based on firsthand accounts, oral histories, and essays from school newspapers and yearbooks, this is the story of the Japanese American children who were evacuated with their families to live in government-run internment camps during World War II. These young people tried to live normal lives, played baseball and football, collected scrap metal for the war effort, went to Saturday night dances, and registered with Selective Service. They were often torn between loyalty to their parents, many of whom sympathized with Japan, and their own identity as Americans. They were also angry that they were being treated as potential traitors and disloyal citizens. The book will be illustrated by archival photographs taken by such outstanding photographers as Dorothea Lange, who was among the people assigned by the Farm Security Administration to document life in the camps, and Ansel Adams
