✏The Dust Bowl Book Summary : Housewives hung wet sheets and blankets over windows and struggled to seal every crack with gummed paper strips. A man avoided shaking hands because the static electricity generated from a dust storm might knock his greeter flat. Children's tears turned to mud. Dead cattle, when pried open, were found filled with pounds of gut-clogging dirt. The simplest thing in life, taking a breath, became life threatening. Conditions in America's prairie during the Dirty Thirties were no blind stroke of nature, however. They had their origins in human error and in the misuse of the land. The Dust Bowl recounts the factors that led to these conditions, how those affected coped, and what can be learned from the tragedy, considered by many to be America's worst prolonged environmental disaster.

✏The Dust Bowl Children Book Summary : Much has been written about the Dust Bowl and about the suffering of those who lived through it. This book does not tell the story of the Dust Bowl but rather the generation that followed. It tells the story of those Texas panhandle children who were born in and around Dalhart, or who joined us at the height of the Dust Bowl and later. We are among the generation that survived the endless dust storms, to live and experience a wonderful life in our home town, to graduate from high school, to go on to colleges and jobs, and to have lives that have been beyond the dreams of our parents. These are the very personal stories and memories of the band of friends from the Class of 1954, recalling how we grew up and what we were able to accomplish in our lives.
