The Dust Bowl: An Illustrated History Cover Image
Dust Bowl: An Illustrated History (Chronicle, $40) is the companion volume to the series, also by Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns, being aired on CBS this fall. The book captures terrifying photographs of mile-high dust clouds, devastated land and livestock, and worried farmers and children. With its many first-hand accounts and oral histories, the book conveys this difficult time in America in vivid detail. Growing up, I heard many stories of the Dust Bowl from my grandmother who lived in the Texas panhandle during that time. This book helps to round out my education on the topic with additional narratives and breathtaking pictures. - Jenny C.
