I'm going to come right out and say it - yes, this novel was depressing, and I cried at the end. But, knowing that it was set in during the Dust Bowl, the depression, and other hard times, it kind of has to be depressing. Plus, it gives one a real taste of what it must have been like for those poor souls that lived through it. The drought, the dust, the depression, where you took any job you could get, and still survived on grit alone.
