Subject:  Re: Ragtime
Message:  Brian, the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck is a great novel about the Dust Bowl days that led to the migration of farmers to California in the early twentieth century and the rise of the unionization of the exploited farm workers, all of which led to the music and activism of Woody Guthrie. This is one of many great historically based American novels, but it's the first one that popped into my head.
