When the dust storms roar through Jake and Maggy's farm again and again, the crops stop growing and the family has to sell all their possessions and head west to California. When the men come to auction off their belongings, Mama hides her radio so they'll still be able to hear the music. The family piles into their truck and sets forth. Along the way, Papa knocks on doors and the family holds together and hopes that one day they'll have a house and a normal life again. The radio gives them hope and Papa finds a few jobs but when their dog Sam eats a rooster, the farmer says either the dog goes or you go. They move on. 64 pages Ages 5-8 An I Can Read Book
