ROSE'S JOURNAL : THE STORY
OF A GIRL IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION
San Diego : Harcourt, 2003.
IL 3-6, RL 5.0
lives in Kansas and the year is 1935. It's during a period of time
known as the Great Depression. Many people were out of work.
The farmers were suffering too. There was a drought that lasted for
several years. Because of the lack of rain, the land dried up and
the farmers were unable to grow crops. Many lost their farms when
they couldn't pay their bills. Rose's family wants to keep their
farm but things are not looking good. The soil is so dry that dust
is blown all around. Some days it gets so bad that they can't even
see where they are going. Even though they want to stay, things are
getting so bad that Rose's family may be forced to leave the farm just
like many of their neighbors.
