    This is a useful book for anyone interested in the conversion from animal to tractor power on mid-western farms. The "Wall Street Journal" reviewed this book with Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression (I purchased them both because of the coincidence of my own upbringing). Rose's Journal is one of Marissa Moss' best books yet. It is both a vivid picture of the Depression era and a moving portrait of an individual child. Rose's relationships with her family, friends, farm animals and land are delicately, poignantly, and even humorously depicted.

      As only great history can, Egan’s book captures the very voice of the times: its grit, pathos, and abiding courage.
