HOPING FOR RAIN : THE DUST
BOWL ADVENTURE OF PATTY AND EARL BUCKLER
Washington, DC : National
you heard of the Dust Bowl? It's not a football game. It happened
a long time ago in an area of the United States known as the Great Plains.
Oklahoma was the hardest hit. During the 1930s, there was very little
rain and most of the crops failed. Then the winds started and whipped
the dirt from the fields around so that there were huge dust storms.
Dirt and dust was everywhere. It was in people's homes, their clothes
and even their food. This is the story of one family and how they
survived the hard times.
