In this film, Ken Burns documents the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history. It began with a frenzied wheat boom on the southern Plains that was followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, which nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Vivid interviews, dramatic photographs, and rare movie footage bring to life incredible stories of human suffering and perseverance. Includes bonus features.
