This morning, I was reading some information about the background story of the famous novel, “The Grapes of Wrath.” The movie, I saw years ago, starring Henry Fonda. When the prairie states became a huge Dust Bowl, the families who lived there moved away. Most of them went to California and/or Oregon. The word I came across in this information was: FECUND (pronounced FE kund) What does that word mean? The sentence in which I found the word says: “The settlers’ crops failed due to poor soils, so they packed up and searched for more FECUND land.” FECUND means: Productive, fruitful or fertile. Who knew?
