In Part 1 of THE DUST BOWL, A FILM BY KEN BURNS, feel the full force of the worst man-made environmental disaster in America's history as survivors recall the terror of the dust storms, the desperation of hungry families and how they managed to find hope even as the earth and heavens seemed to turn against them.
