Ken Burns's The Dust Bowl Two-DVD Set
With his Emmy Award–winning meticulousness, Ken Burns explores one of the greatest ecological disasters of all time with a combination of eyewitness interviews and authentic footage. Gripping accounts of environmental and financial struggles, told by the now-elderly children whose families faced them, alternate with footage of cataclysmic, mile-high dust storms barreling toward one-story towns. Burns's skillfully balanced narrative covers both midwestern families' harrowing fight to survive and the bones-deep love of the land that kept them rooted to their farms. The complex documentary weaves a cogent web of the human stories, ecological fact, and political policy that helped destroy—and then rescue—America's breadbasket.
