- Personal interview: “I’m like my pa. That’s what everybody tells me. I want to see our farm be rich again. I don’t think my pa’s done a bad job. I just think it’s this stinkin’ weather. And no one wants to buy what we grow anyway.”
- Character profile: Adam, the oldest son, has always assumed that the family farm would be his someday. In the 1920s, he was more than proud to admit this. Now that the stock market has fallen and with the crop prices plummeting every day, he ignores any sort of conversation about agriculture. He’s a headstrong young man with a heart for the homestead and a mind for numbers, and he refuses to see his family give up on the land. At the same time, his boyish interests distract him long enough to find joy in the simplest of things. He spends much of his time in school and favors the games over eating his lunch. He’s a class clown and yet at the top of his class in academic areas such as math and science. He’s a diligent worker, a respectful son, and worships his father. He finds a best friend in his younger brother Samuel and between the two of them keeps the family in high spirits even as the depression seems to be closing in around them.
