Summary
The Schaub family purchased a farm in northwest Iowa in the mid 1930s. The worst of the Great Depression was ebbing, but the bad economy still had plenty of bite and a world war loomed. Werner and his wife, Laura, mustered all the money they could to buy their own place; once they had it, they did everything they could to make a living. Their children chipped in, but they also managed to find adventure around every corner. Meanwhile, a tempestuous Mother Nature complicated their lives with violent winds and black dust storms. The church, generally a rock of support for the community, became unbending at times. World War II improved grain markets but took many sons away from the farms. The Schaub family stuck together, but financial insecurity lurked in the shadows. Getting land, paying for it, and making a living were tough in the Dust Bowl in the 1930s. Even so, the Schaubs never gave up as they tried to find the good life Between the Corn Rows
