The 1930s Dust Bowl was probably the worst disaster to hit America

The 1930s Dust Bowl was probably the worst disaster to hit America. Poor farming techniques coupled with drought conditions created a situation where valuable farm land turned to dust and blew away in huge dust storms that blotted out the sun. The loss of farm land forced thousands of Great Plains residents to relocate in the hopes of finding a future. Richard Levey describes those trying times in DUST BOWL, a volume in Bearport Publishing's 'X-treme Disasters that Changed America' series

The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the American and Canadian prairies during the 1930s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent the aeolian processes (wind erosion) caused the phenomenon. The drought came in three waves, 1934, 1936, and 1939–1940, but some regions of the high plains experienced drought conditions for as many as eight years.

The Dust Bowl was the name given to the drought-stricken Southern Plains region of the United States, which suffered severe dust storms during a dry period in the 1930s. As high winds and choking dust swept the region from Texas to Nebraska, people and livestock were killed and crops failed across the entire region. A series of wet years during the period created further misunderstanding of the region’s ecology and led to the intensive cultivation of increasingly marginal lands that couldn’t be reached by irrigation

Few ecological disasters in US history have left a deeper mark on the country than the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. When drought hit in the 1930s, the unanchored topsoil blew away in huge dust storms like the one pictured above. The resulting ecological disaster ravaged 100 million acres of land and contributed to the displacement of . million Americans. A black wall of dust advances on Beaver, Oklahoma. The car on the road gives a sense of scale. Dust storm approaching Springfield, Colorado. Buildings are engulfed by a dust storm on Black Sunday.

  • Horrible. I was paying for an adult book about tha dust bowl, which I remember and I was sent a childrens book. I was very disappointed.

    Intended for readers 9-12, Levey's book relates how farmers unknowingly brought on the Dust Bowl disaster by failing to use good soil conservation practices. (Back then, who knew!?!) Lack of rain set the stage for the huge 'black blizzards' that paralyzed cities, killed livestock and animals and eventualy forced 'Okies' and others to go west. Eventually the federal government stepped in, the rains came and the crisis was over but, in the meantime, some very hard times were endured by thousands of Americans.

    Lever's book, which tops out at 32 pages, is an excellent Dust Bowl primer. He shares experiences of people who survived the droughts/black blizzards. He also includes many b&w and color photographs, graphs and maps that help define where the Dust Bowl was and depict what Great Plains life was like in the 1930s. The pix of black blizzards are fascinating.

    Young readers should be intrigued by DUST BOWL. It shows how different - and hard - life was like for Americans of the 1930s. Recommended.
