Dustland to Grassland

The storms of the Dust Bowl are legendary, epitomized in the April 14, 1935 ‘duster’ which gave the date the name "Black Sunday." Despite the fame of the Dust Bowl, the recovery from it is much less well known. The History Guy remembers a story of the massive undertaking that changed the relationship of Americans to their land. It is a moving story of appropriate land use and stewardship that deserves to be remembered.
