Years of Dust: The Story of the Dust Bowl

Descriere: Before global warming, there was dust. In the 1930s, dangerous black storms swept through the Great Plains. Created by drought and reckless farming, these lethal storms were part of an environmental, economic, and human catastrophe that changed the course of American history. In riveting, accessible prose, an acclaimed historian explains the causes behind the disaster and explores the Dust Bowlas impact, from a rich cultural legacy to the visionary conservation that would finally offer hope to the Plains.
