Cimarron Girl: The Dust Bowl Years of Abigail Brubaker is a fictional recollection of young Abigail’s experiences on the family’s Oklahoma prairie farm, located in Cimarron, the heart of the Dust Bowl. Abby’s first-person account chronicles key episodes each year as the depth of the drought unfolds. As she grows, personal perspectives are woven from actual events. Readers experience the challenges, sacrifices, and dreams of farmers, whose story of loss was echoed by the millions. The Brubakers struggle to hold their family farm, face harsh realities, and hope for a new start in California. A journey across the Southwest over legendary Route 66 carries adventure, a chance meeting, and peels back several layers of the Great Migration.

Cimarron Girl reflects Dust Bowl history, but moreover, it’s a story about family. When challenges are faced, virtues are to be lived. Courage, fortitude, and kindness are underlying themes at the soft heart of Cimarron Girl. Net profits from Cimarron Girl will support the Oak Clinic for Multiple Sclerosis. Oak Clinic’s singular mission is to treat and empower individuals and families living with multiple sclerosis, regardless of their ability to pay.

Review:

"Reminiscent of the Little House stories, Cimarron Girl is the story of a girl in Oklahoma and how her life was changed by the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. The story is told in a simple way and does an excellent job of showing the reader the difficulties that a farming family went through during this time. The beautiful pictures bring the story to life. At the end of the book there is a timeline of actual events during the 1930s to help tie the book into history, and would make this a great choice for use in a history lesson. I also appreciated the author including information on how farming techniques of the era worsened the Dust Bowl and what was changed to prevent this going forward." -Rachel Stansel
