Christian based historical fiction for ages 12 and up. It's the 1920's and the prosperity seems as if it will never end. Then, suddenly, the stock market crashes and the banks close, followed by strong winds called the Dust Bowl. Soon the Matthew's family farm will no longer produce, and the bankers foreclose on it, leaving them nowhere to live except their old car. Paul, who is fourteen, has heard that the bankers actually cheated them out of their farm, and he wants revenge. Mary, thirteen, wonders why they are going through such severe trials, since they are Christians who have tried to serve God. Slowly they make their way westward, where their father hopes to find work. On the way they must stay in smelly transient camps, and encounter thieves, deceivers, and even religious hypocrites. They have never had such a severe test of faith - and many times they wonder what God is doing in their lives.
