A New Deal for South Dakota: Drought, Depression, and Relief, 1920-1941 by R. Alton Lee


In South Dakota, drought, grasshoppers, and low commodity prices were the final blows in a long economic slump that culminated in the Great Depression and brought the state to its knees. Author R. Alton examines the New Deal's effect on families, farmers, miners, youth, women, American Indians, and others. He evaluates South Dakota's efforts to avoid both starvation and federal dependence as its people endured the worst natural and economic disaster of modern times.
