Summary
A speck of dust is a tiny thing. In fact, five of them could fit into the period at the end of this sentence. On a clear warm Sunday - April 14, 1935 - a wild wind whipped up billions upon billions of these specks of dust to form a duster - a savage storm - on American's high southern plains. The sky turned black, sand-filled winds scoured the paint off houses and cars, trains derailed, and electricity coursed through the air. Sand and dirt fell like snow - people got lost in the gloom and suffocated...And that was just the beginning. Don Brown brings the Dirty Thirties to life in this gripping account of one of America's most catastrophic natural events: the Dust Bowl
