"[This film] chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, when a frenzied wheat boom on the Southern Plains, followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Menacing black blizzards killed farmers' crops and livestock, threatened the lives of their children, and forced thousands of desperate families to pack up and move somewhere else. Vivid interviews with more than two dozen survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs, and seldom-seen movie footage bring to life incredible stories of human suffering and equally incredible perseverance."--Container

Mark Twain by Ken Burns( Visual )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel Clemens rose from a hardscrabble boyhood in the backwoods of Missouri to become, as Mark Twain, America's best-known and best-loved author. Considered in his time as the funniest man on earth, Twain was also an unflinching critic of human nature who used his humor to attack hypocrisy, greed and racism. He created some of the world's most memorable characters as well as its most quoted sayings. And, in his often-misunderstood novel "Huckleberry Finn," he brought forth a masterpiece that Ernest Hemingway called the true beginning of American literature. This remarkable film tells the story of Twain's extraordinary life -- full of rollicking adventure, stupendous success and crushing defeat, hilarious comedy and almost unbearable tragedy
