Rate this:
In the 1930s, as the entire United States contended with the effects of the Great Depression, dust storms raged throughout a portion of the country that had once been rich farmland. Depleted of their natural prairie grasses and farmed too harshly, eroded soils blew away as drought settled in. Like thousands of Americans during that time, Calvin and his family cling to hope as they wonder when "next year" will finally come. Ultimately, a choice will be made that will change the landscapeof Calvin's family forever.
