This is a great graphic novel about the American Dust Bowl. This would be an excellent book to teach students about American History, and it includes many detailed illustrations to give the students an image about what life was like during this time. I would use this for upper elementary or middle school students. ( )

This book is great to help students learn about the Dust Bowl and the 1930's. This book does tell how hard it was to live during the 1930's and the hardships they faced on a daily basis. The illustrations in this book are detailed and paint a wonderful picture in the readers mind. I love how the book accurately told the story of the dust bowl in a creative but factual way which helps students grasp the story. ( )

Using a graphic novel as a format, Don Brown had done a great job of informing a new generation about the Dust Bowl. He takes the reader all the way back to 100 million years ago to explain how the Plains came to be. With 'right to the point' writing, readers can understand what happened to people living in the 1930's. He has not sugarcoated this era. ( )

For such a short graphic novel, this story does a thorough job explaining the causes and consequences of the dust bowl--the ecological aspects, the economic disaster it spawned, and the debilitating medical conditions that resulted. Presented clearly and with evocative images done primarily in a muted brown palette, The Great American Dust Bowl is historical nonfiction at its best. An informative, gripping read that leaves readers with a clearer understanding of the past and more than a little concern about our environmental future. An excellent choice for reluctant readers and history buffs, or middle schoolers who like a touch of the gruesome, made all the more exciting because it's true. JF ( )
