Excellent resource book

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-11-19) Excellent Permalink

This resource makes the dust bowl real for readers.  It is loaded with amazing photographs and interesting information. This book covers both historical and ecological aspects of what lead up to the dust bowl, and what came out of it.  Excellent.
