Wednesday Freebie

Imagine your world is stolen.
Imagine you stay.

In the 1930s the American Great Plains entered a drought. The farming practices of that area had left the rich soil exposed, so as the drought deepened, the soil dried up. Winds stripped the topsoil, then blew it across the country in massive dust storms. The area became known as the Dust Bowl. Hundreds of thousands were forced to leave. Some stayed.

Rain: A Dust Bowl Story, tells the story of the Dust Bowl from the perspective of one family who stayed, using poetry. It is well worth checking out.
