A long time ago, there was a terrible drought in Oklahoma.  During the 1930s, there was very little rain and the land dried up.  No crops would grow.  People lost their homes since they couldn't make a living.  These folks loaded up their cars and took off hoping for a better life in California.  Here is the story of one family.
