Overview

Voices of the Dust Bowl by Sherry Garland, Judith Hierstein

Voices from those who lived through the largest environmental catastrophe in American history.

From 1931 to 1940, a combination of drought and soil erosion destroyed the fragile ecology and economy of the Great Plains. Evocative illustrations accompany poignant testimonies, including those of a farmer's wife, a banker, and a child who had never seen rain, to provide an emotionally charged account.
