so who knows of some good books (novels are specifically what i'm into lately) in which the main characters are poor folk? perhaps a book set in a slum/underdeveloped country/reservation (yes, i am generalizing here) or set prior to the 1900's. you get my drift?...i've just been having cravings to read such books and learn what i can from them.

thanks,
reese

I don't remember if there is much to learn from it but "Doctor Zhivago" is a great classic novel that details stuggles of people during the Russian Revolution living poor. It really is a great story and novel, and one of my favorites.

There is John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath". One of my favourite books.
