Program Description

Event Details

The dust storms that terrorized the Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since. In The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl, author Timothy Egan follows a dozen long-suffering families and their communities through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones. In an era that promises ever-greater natural disasters, this book provides a powerful cautionary tale about the dangers of trifling with nature.
