In 1931 the rains stopped and the "black blizzards" began. Less well-known than those who sought refuge in California, typified by the Joad family in John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath," the Dust Bowlers stayed and overcame an almost a decade of unbelievable calamities and disasters, enduring drought, dust, disease--even death--determined to preserve their way of life.

science and history--good for both class

By Coach Naum-Bedigian

Comments about PBS American Experience: Surviving the Dust Bowl DVD:

I use this dvd in my geology class in the unit I due about erosion and mass wasting. The show points out how poor farming practices combined with a long stretch of bad weather resulted in such a disaster. I use the video to discuss the science of the as well as the social programs the dust bowl and depression spawned. The eye witness accounts are compelling. Anyone interested in depression era history will enjoy this well crafted video.
