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.

Another Ken Burns' production in the MUST SEE category. Again, great history of a very hard time in our past with an angry Mother Nature. It is truly a lesson for the future. We must take care of our earth home or we will suffer again.

Amazing Television Program

By Mark Norman

from Oklahoma City

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The Dust Bowl Blu-ray:

Living in Oklahoma today it is amazing to think that the land in Northwest Oklahoma where I was born and raised and still own today was once a Dust Bowl. I remember in the 1950's we left Oklahoma for a while when the dirt and wind returned for a few years before the farmers learned how to protect our land. OETA our state public television network hosted several events during the airing of the Dust Bowl progarms on PBS. As a Deputy Director of OETA I was honored in winning a regional Emmy for the Outreach efforts of OETA. The honors we received at OETA would not have been possible without the vision and passion of Ken Burns and his production company to produce some of the best television you will find on the dial. Ken Burns is truly a master of story telling and he tells the stories we all can benefit from seeing. Thank you Ken and staff for your continued work with PBS and stations like OETA.
