The Dust Bowl 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. Menacing black blizzards killed farmers' crops and livestock, threatened the lives of their children, and forced thousands of desperate families to pick up and move somewhere else.

Dust Bowl was an outstanding documentary. A must see for everyone. It will touch your heart. My Mother and Dad were from the Dust Bowl(Guymon). Your story was just like theirs. Thank you so much. They were the Volino family, ten miles north of Guymon. Donna R. Bannister

Great documentary. The facts are they were, shown in true to believe settings. Educational for ALL generations. How our people turned land to that condition, how they survived, and how to prevent in the future. Man vs. Land. Extremely important for future. Not merely as story of the past.

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The Dust Bowl DVD:

Ken Burns "The Dust Bowl" tells the story of both the people who stayed, and of the people who migrated west, in a clear and concise manner that is very user friendly for the classroom.

Ken Burns Put Visuals to My Grandmother's Stories, Amazing

By Songsmith

from Colorado ExPat

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The Dust Bowl DVD:

My Grandmother homesteaded on the KA/OK border and lived the Dust Bowl. I grew up on her stories. This documentary put her anguish and loss into sharp contrast for me and showed me more than my imagination could ever have conceived. I wept & wished my Grandmother were alive to watch it with me. I am buying this so my young friends can see what they have only heard about.
