The Dust Bowl by Ken Burns( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This film] chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, when a frenzied wheat boom on the Southern Plains, followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation.

Vivid interviews with more than two dozen survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs, and seldom-seen movie footage bring to life incredible stories of human suffering and equally incredible perseverance."--Container
