"[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
