Woody Guthrie wrote this song the song is called "Dust Bowl Refugee". He wrote it about the people back then and calls the people refugees. The lyrics make it sound like the dust bowl was everywhere. He talks about wife and kids being with him and how hard it was. The dust comes in like a whirlwind he thinks.The dust is in the fruit and crops. He wonders if he will ever be out of the dust since it is so bad.

It was a primary doc. about the dust bowl. This was a thunderstorm in Texas and it was very bad.It kicked up on July 24th. On that day two 18wheelers crashed in to a car. The dust in the clouds look really scary. The drought is a natural phenomenon as well in the Great Plains. 1932 their were 14 dust storms.

The Dust Bowl, or the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms causing major ecological and agricultural damage to American and Canadian prairie lands in the 1930s, particularly in 1934 and 1936. The phenomenon was caused by severe drought combined with farming methods that did not include crop rotation, fallow fields, cover crops, soil terracing and wind-breaking trees to prevent wind erosion.[1] Extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains in the preceding decade had displaced the natural deep-rooted grasses that normally kept the soil in place and trapped moisture even during periods of drought and high winds. Rapid mechanization of farm implements, especially small gasoline tractors and widespread use of the harvester-combine were significant in the decisions to convert grassland (much of which received no more than 10 inches (250 mm) of precipitation per year) to cultivated cropland.

During the drought of the 1930s, without natural anchors to keep the soil in place, it dried, turned to dust, and blew away with the prevailing winds. At times, the clouds blackened the sky, reaching all the way to East Coast cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. Much of the soil ended up deposited in the Atlantic Ocean, carried by prevailing winds. These immense dust storms—given names such as "black blizzards" and "black rollers"—often reduced visibility to a few feet (a meter) or less. The Dust Bowl affected 100,000,000 acres (400,000 km2), centered on the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, and adjacent parts of New Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas.[2]

Millions of acres of farmland were damaged, and hundreds of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes; many of these families (often known as "Okies", since so many came from Oklahoma) migrated to California and other states, where they found economic conditions little better during the Great Depression than those they had left. Owning no land, many became migrant workers who traveled from farm to farm to pick fruit and other crops at starvation wages. Author John Steinbeck later wrote The Grapes of Wrath, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and Of Mice and Men, about such people.

Dear Ma and Pa,
Joseph Mcbride's comment, February 25, 2013 9:56 AM
I am stuck here in this Dust Bowl. I do not have any food or shelter. Can you please come to Kansas and save me? I miss you guys and I miss my little sister. I really wish I had a warm bed. Instead, I have a lot of dust around me. It is in my hair and in my clothes. This dust is even in my food. I am trying to get a job, but I feel like a refugee roaming around. Love Joseph

Primary Document 3 Woody Guthrie | THE DUST BOWL

Primary Document 3      Woody Guthrie | THE DUST BOWL | The Dust Bowl By:Jm | Scoop.it
THE DUST BOWL 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.
Joseph Mcbride's insight:

As I went walking, I saw a sign there,
And on the sign there, it said “Private Property.” 
But on the other side, it didn't say nothing!
That side was made for you and me.
In the squares of the city, in the shadow of a steeple,
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?

This was a song by Woody Guthrie. It shows the lyrics of his song. He is talking about the Dust Boawl. He is talking about how hard it was back then. In the photo I see two people. The people look like they are running away. It looks like the storm is coming.
