See THE DUST BOWL on PBS
For review purposes, I had to watch DVDs of a new film by Ken Burns. It has a November 18th PBS premiere date. I love his work but, the sunny summer weekend I watched it, I didn't think that over two hours of a documentary on a 1930s environmental crisis would hold my interest. I was riveted and, a couple of times, moved to tears. You must see this on your local PBS station. Don't fool yourself by thinking a crisis during the Great Depression has nothing to do with us in this 21st Century age of technology. The Dust Bowl is so relevant and significant to modern times that you'll be slack-jawed.
