This is a fascinating, heartbreaking book about America's worst man made catastrophe, and how we seem on course to repeat it. I did not see the series on PBS but the memories of those who lived through it are completely engrossing. It really makes you realize the "hardships" that most people claim to experience today, PALE in comparison to what people had to endure during the great depression, the dust bowl, and WWII. I highly recommend this book. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
(Preface) For a traveler traveling south down US 385/287 through the flat relentless expanses of first Prowers and then Baca County, Colorado, in the southeastern corner of that state, heading toward Oklahoma and the geographic heart of the ten-year disaster known as the Dust Bowl, it is impossible not to notice the relative stability and even peace of the landscape.
From the time she was a young girl, Carolina Boa Henderson had dreamed of having a piece of land she could call her own.
