Novel by John Steinbeck
"The Grapes of Wrath"
The book was published in 1939.
Remember the old movie with the celebrated Hollywood film version
starring Henry Fonda in 1940?" How can you frighten a man whose hunger is
not only in his own cramped stomach
but in the wretched bellies of his children? You can't scare him--
he has known a fear beyond every other."
Downloaded from e-reader store 1.99

Gene Stratton- Porter (1863-1924)
was an American author, amateur naturalist, wildlife photographer, and one of the earliest women to form a movie studio and production company. She wrote some of the best selling novels and well- received columns in magazines of the day.
She also wrote (The girl of Limberlost) and I will read more of her books.Laddie, A true blue story---
Part of the Indiana Classics 0f the 1900's
"I 'd been sick enough to know that I'd better be thankful for a chance to sit on the fence, and think about buttercups and daisies. Really, one old brown and purple skunk cabbage with a half frozen bee buzzing over it, or a few forlorn little spring beauties, would have set me wild, and when a lark really did go over, away up high, and a dove began to coo in the orchard, if Laddie hadn't come for me , I would have fallen from the fence."

(From the e-reader store 1.99)
I enjoyed this book very much.

I am still reading my new book but have been thinking you may find this interesting.
I love some old out of circulation books.
This is" The Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardener"

This was written by Harry R. O'Brien in 1933.
Harry was published in Better Homes and Gardens,
and The Country Gentleman Magazines. He also taught at Ohio State University.

I collected post war magazines and others ,
this is a article from 1935 Better Homes and Garden about Gardeners that write books.

Harry wrote passionately about his garden and the plants that he worked and loved.
You can enlarge pictures to read.
