This real life drama played out in 1931, when the skies offered little rain to farmers across the Southern Plains. In their place came the "black blizzards" and the loss of livelihoods and lives. Some headed for California (a la The Grapes of Wrath), but many determined souls stayed and clung to their way of life, despite horrific conditions. This is their incredible story. 1998/color/55 min/NR/fullscreen.
