Part historical fiction on the Dust Bowl, part fantasy, part folklore--and those are a lot of elements to cram into a relatively slim graphic novel, so the story isn't as developed as I'd like to see--I feel like I'm missing several bits that would tie elements together and make them all relevant. The art is nice, but the precise typesetting of the text holds the reader back from really falling into the illustrations.
