Out Of The Dust by, Karen Hesse, was a novel about a girl and her family who were surviving the dust bowl.The novel is timed in the great depression and takes place in Oklahoma Panhandle .

The good is represented by the bravery found in Rikki-tikki. He builds up enough courage to fight the gigantic cobra, the cobra is as big as the Cubs stadium.
