📝The Worst Hard Time Book Synopsis : In a tour de force of historical reportage, Timothy Egan’s National Book Award–winning story rescues an iconic chapter of American history from the shadows. The dust storms that terrorized the High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since. Following a dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region, Timothy Egan tells of their desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones. Brilliantly capturing the terrifying drama of catastrophe, he does equal justice to the human characters who become his heroes, “the stoic, long-suffering men and women whose lives he opens up with urgency and respect” (New York Times). In an era that promises ever-greater natural disasters, The Worst Hard Time is “arguably the best nonfiction book yet” (Austin Statesman Journal) on the greatest environmental disaster ever to be visited upon our land and a powerful reminder about the dangers of trifling with nature. This e-book includes a sample chapter of THE IMMORTAL IRISHMAN.

📝The Worst Hard Time Book Synopsis : The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl 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. He follows their desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black blizzards, crop failure, and the deaths of loved ones. 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.

📝America s Disaster Culture Book Synopsis : Are we inside the era of disasters or are we merely inundated by mediated accounts of events categorized as catastrophic? America's Disaster Culture offers answers to this question and a critical theory surrounding the culture of "natural†? disasters in American consumerism, literature, media, film, and popular culture. In a hyper-mediated global culture, disaster events reach us with great speed and minute detail, and Americans begin forming, interpreting, and historicizing catastrophes simultaneously with fellow citizens and people worldwide. America's Disaster Culture is not policy, management, or relief oriented. It offers an analytical framework for the cultural production and representation of disasters, catastrophes, and apocalypses in American culture. It focuses on filling a need for critical analysis centered upon the omnipresence of real and imagined disasters, epidemics, and apocalypses in American culture. However, it also observes events, such as the Dust Bowl, Hurricane Katrina, and 9/11, that are re-framed and re-historicized as "natural†? disasters by contemporary media and pop culture. Therefore, America's Disaster Culture theorizes the very parameters of classifying any event as a "natural†? disaster, addresses the biases involved in a catastrophic event's public narrative, and analyzes American culture's consumption of a disastrous event. Looking toward the future, what are the hypothetical and actual threats to disaster culture? Or, are we oblivious that we are currently living in a post-apocalyptic landscape?

📝Eavesdropping on Texas History Book Synopsis : Most writers and readers of history have at one time or another wished that they could have been at some particular defining event in history. Whether it was a moment of a great decision, a major turning point that changed everything, or simply an intriguing occurrence, many scholars and others have on occasion wished that they “could have been there.” Texas history provides infinite Lone Star episodes to consider, rooted in the widespread assumption that Texas is a colorful, unique, and exceptional place with larger-than-life heroes and narratives. Mary L. Scheer has assembled fifteen contributors to explore special moments in Texas history. The contributors assembled for this anthology represent many of the “all stars” among Texas historians: two State Historians of Texas, two past presidents of TSHA, four current or past presidents of ETHA, two past presidents of WTHA, nine fellows of historical associations, two Fulbright Scholars, and seven award-winning authors. Each is an expert in his or her field and provided in some fashion an answer to the question: At what moment in Texas history would you have liked to have been a “fly on the wall” and why? The choice of an event and the answers were both personal and individual, ranging from familiar topics to less well-known subjects. One wanted to be at the Alamo. Another chose to explore when Sam Houston refused to take a loyalty oath to the Confederacy. One chapter follows the first twenty-four hours of Lyndon Baines Johnson’s presidency after Kennedy’s assassination. Others write about the Dust Bowl coming to Texas, or when Texas Southern University was created. Their respective essays are not written as isolated occurrences or “moments,” but as causal developments presented within the larger social and political context of the period.

đź“ťHow to Survive the Worst of Winter Book Synopsis : This is a book about surviving the worst that winter has to give us. And there''s a lot of bad stuff. Severe cold, bone-chattering wind chills, heavy snows, cars or trucks that won''t start in a storm, isolation, short, dark days, and a lot more. And if you''re caught in the midst of even one of these situations -- much less more than one -- you are in a possible deadly challenge to your life. And that''s under "normal" situations. If one of these events happens when there''s an apocalyptic issue going on regionally or even world-wide, your problems will grow exponentially worse. Which is why you have to be ready. Because unless you live in a very warm climate year round, you don''t know when you might be caught in one of these scenarios. And if you are, not only your life might be at risk, but the lives of your wife or your children or your parents or someone else who depends on you. And even if you live in a warm climate, you might have a freak storm. Although we don''t think about these much, they happen, even in such normally year round warm spots like southern California or Texas or Florida. And the added problem in spots like those is that people aren''t prepared. Why should they be? After all, a record-breaking cold spell is unlikely to happen, right? Until it does. And while a woman in Nebraska might know what to pack, and how to watch out for a storm like that (after all, she probably deals with them every year) our suddenly cold friends in Texas or Florida aren''t used to dealing with such. And might not know how to drive in these situations. Or might not know what to have in their car or truck. Or might not know how to deal with a situation that could either be an aggravation -- or a potentially life-threatening hazard. And in these situations, you might have to depend on your own skill and knowledge and street smarts to save your life. Even in normal times, in a storm, rescue resources will be stretched -- and someone may not be able to get to you in time to help you out. But imagine what would happen if a catastrophic event occurred in the midst of one of these worst case winter scenarios. In a time like that, it might be days or weeks or longer before rescue services could recover. And while volunteers would probably be doing everything they could to take care of suffering, those volunteers would be stretched to the limits. Getting to you might take a long time. And that''s even assuming that they would know that you were out there: maybe trapped. Cold. Snowed in. Nothing to eat. No water. And dangerously cold temperatures every day and night. So that''s what this book is about: saving your life and the lives of those who depend on you. It''s long on action and short on theory. Because while there''s nothing wrong with theory, a good theory won''t save your life. Read this book carefully. I want you to understand it. I want it to become part of the way you approach winter. Because winter is a little bit like electricity. How''s that, you ask? Well, electricity is wonderful. It enables us to work on a computer, to read by a light, to cook a meal on an electric stove, or to run life-saving medical equipment. But get on the wrong side of electricity, and you can get the jolt of your life or get knocked across a room by the current. Or even killed. I don''t want you to be afraid of winter. It''s a great time, and a time when we often enjoy wonderful times with those we love, especially around Christmas. But I do want you to respect winter. Because while it can be a time of beauty and fun, it can be deadly if not dealt with correctly. And that''s for normal, healthy adults. Children, the elderly, the sick - these are even more at risk. This is how you can not only save your life, but be useful when a community has to recover after a collapse. You can make a difference. What you know is more important than any equipment you might have, crucial as that equipment can be. Study this book carefully, and you''ll have that needed knowledge.

📝The Third Plate Book Synopsis : “Not since Michael Pollan has such a powerful storyteller emerged to reform American food.” —The Washington Post Today’s optimistic farm-to-table food culture has a dark secret: the local food movement has failed to change how we eat. It has also offered a false promise for the future of food. In his visionary New York Times–bestselling book, chef Dan Barber, recently showcased on Netflix’s Chef’s Table, offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste good, too. Looking to the detrimental cooking of our past, and the misguided dining of our present, Barber points to a future “third plate”: a new form of American eating where good farming and good food intersect. Barber’s The Third Plate charts a bright path forward for eaters and chefs alike, daring everyone to imagine a future for our national cuisine that is as sustainable as it is delicious.
