From the TALK series, The 1930s
Discussion Leader: Steven Foulke

Egan describes the first of the new storms that would come to define the Dust Bowl: "Wasn't a sandstorm . . . . And it wasn't a hailstorm, though it certainly brought with it a dark, threatening sky . . . It rolled, like a mobile hill of crud, and it was black." Egan provides a masterful overview of the dust storms and their consequences for agriculture and people on the Great Plains. 312 pp. (2006)
