Coming Sunday on PBS: The Dust Bowl

THE DUST BOWL, a film by Ken Burns, chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation.

The U.S. government sent some talented photographers to capture America during the 30s. Learn more about them and their iconic images that brought the Dust Bowl home to everyone. View the photos: http://to.pbs.org/QN2oIT

Premieres November 18 and 19, 2012 8:00–10:00 p.m. ET on PBS
