The Dust Bowl Blu-ray Review | Blu-Ray.com

Blu-Ray.com:
In the 1930s, this tremendous effort to manipulate risky land resulted in the commencement of dust storms or "Dust Blizzards," which swallowed Middle America with a vengeance, taxing even the most determined farmer hoping for a better tomorrow. The storms destroyed domestic routine and decimated the landscape, killing cattle and crop growth, while introducing "dust pneumonia" to the populace, as dust particles worked their way into lungs, creating crippling health problems. As the Depression crawled across the country, No Man's Land was decimated by financial ruin, hungry jackrabbits (necessitating "rabbit drives" to slaughter them all), and death, finding suicide a popular exit for those facing foreclosures and tragedy. (Blu-ray, The Dust Bowl) 3.5/5
