Storyboard Text

  • As you can see, this is my family farm after the Great Depression. I came and visited today for the first time since we left 60 years ago. How did it get like this? It all started like this...
  • Back in the beginning of the 20th century, yield was good. I used to run through the lush, green fields.
  • We expanded the farm greatly to meet the demands for feeding the army in WWI.
  • But we expanded too greatly... We went into debt trying to mechanize our operations.
  • The rains went away and the farms dried up. Our crops withered away.
  • And then it was the Dust Bowl. We decided to move out West to try to find work.
