Summary
During the Great Depression, fourteen-year-old Billie Jo must endure heartwrenching ordeals that no child should have to face. She and her parents struggle to keep their Oklahoma farm running as a drought and devastating dust storms take a toil on both the land and the family. In this midst of this turmoil, a tragic household accident badly injures both Billie Jo and her mother. The quiet strength Billie Jo displays while dealing with such unspeakable loss is as surprising as it is inspiring
Summary
In a series of poems, fourteen-year-old Billie Jo relates the hardships of living on her family's wheat farm in Oklahoma during the dust bowl years of the Depression
