Dust Bowl, P.S.

I should have mentioned in the post on Ken Burns' documentary about the Dust Bowl, "The Worst Hard Time," by Timothy Egan. http://www.nationalbook.org/nba2006_nf_egan.html.

He is one of the sources for the documentary, and his award-wining book is invaluable non-fiction journalism. I recommended it on this blog before when writing about the Panhandle, back in December. http://clarkcoffee.blogspot.com/2011/12/in-panhandle.html

You can read an interview with him at this link: http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/readers_guides/egan_worst.shtml
