Summary
"Tike and Ella May Hamlin struggle to plant roots in the arid land of the Texas Panhandle. The husband and wife live in a precarious wooden farm shack, but Tike yearns for a sturdy house that will protect them from the treacherous elements. Thanks to a five-cent government pamphlet, Tike has the know-how to build a simple adobe dwelling, a structure made from the land itself-fireproof, windproof, Dust Bowl-proof. A house of earth. Though they are one with the farm and with each other, the land on which Tike and Ella May live and work is not theirs. Due to larger forces beyond their control - including ranching conglomerates and banks - their adobe house remains painfully out of reach."--back cover
Summary
In this story of rural realism and progressive activism that is in many ways a companion piece to the author's folk anthem This Land Is Your Land, Tike and Ella May Hamil struggle to plant roots in the arid land of the Texas Panhandle
