I learned so much I didn't know in this beautifully illustrated graphic novel.
A great little historical graphic about the dust bowl. Very informative... I probably got just as much out of these 80 pages as I did out of a whole book I read on the subject!
This non-fiction graphic novel does just what I have come to love about this format. It was engaging and gave me just enough information that I want to learn more. And, because of the extensive bibliography, I have no excuse.
I liked this one quite a bit. It was a interesting (and every approachable)way to learn about the history of the dust bowl and the factors that lead to its inevitable occurrence. I love the new trend of graphic novels for more educational nonfiction topics. They are a great way to get kids and young adults (or even reluctant adults) both into the genera of history and the medium of graphic novels. And this one is a great example of this new trend. I'd recommend it to anyone with even a little interest in the history of the dust bowl, regardless of age
A speck of dust is a tiny thing but when billions and billions are being blown by a fierce wind, the sky turns black, and people get lost in the darkness, and they suffocate. The Dust Bowl in the 1930’s was America’s most catastrophic natural event, and we have not yet fully recovered from it. Graphic novel format.
