6.2 Children of the Dust Bowl 6-Pack

Children of the Dust Bowl is the compelling story of the “Okie” migration to California of the 1930’s and of the construction and life of a remarkable school at a farm workers’ camp there. Told largely in the words of the migrants themselves, and generously illustrated with period photographs, this memorable book provides a glimpse of a neglected period of American history and tells a story of prejudice being transformed into acceptance and despair into hope.
