Kristin Hannah's The Four Winds is a great visual and emotional description of the Depression era Dust Bowl in Texas and one family's striving to survive. Elsa & her two children drive in desperation to California to "where the jobs are" in the cotton fields of the Central Valley. A journey of one woman trying to find her own voice.— Pat Fowler

“A brilliantly woven narrative set during the Dust Bowl years on the High Plains of Texas, The Four Winds is a story of survival that inspires us to persist. Hannah extensively researched the devastation of this climatic and agricultural phenomenon and its toll on communities, which seamlessly informs the deftly woven narrative of the life of Elsa, a woman who finds that she has more tenacity and resourcefulness than she had been raised to believe — and then some.”
