  •  Watched the movie last night . . . . (0+ / 0-)

    . . . . on TCM, and read the book a number of times over the years.  Both are brilliant and accurate portrayals of what Timothy Egan calls "The Worst Hard Time".  For a non-fiction account of this period, watch Ken Burns' "The Dust Bowl".  Burns' work was also brilliant, though incredibly sad and moving.

    We all need to understand not only the corporate systems that control us, but the environmental systems that sustain us.
