Smoky Hills Public Television Specials

Stories From The Dust Bowl

Passport Special | 56m 44s

The 1930's was a time of the Great Depression, and extreme drought with choking dirt storms. Kansas, Oklahoma, and many other regions were referred to as the "Dustbowl." Smoky Hills Public Television uses old photographs, film, music and interviews with history consultants and the people who lived through this time period to tell the story of this critical time in our history.
