Dear , ValleyPBS Viewer

Don't miss the end of this brand-new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns. Part two of The Dust Bowl continues chronicling the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history.

The decade-long natural catastrophe of Biblical proportions encompassed 100 million acres in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. It was a time when rippling oceans of wind and dust covered the plains. This environmental disaster was caused when thousands of farmers, eager to cash in on high wheat prices, leveled land only to be struck with a decade of draught, extreme temperatures and recession. The land was left barren, the fields became parched and families huddled in dark rooms while angry winds shook their homes and brought the top soil airborne, creating massive, unrelenting dust storms.

In this documentary, hear the compelling stories of survivors sharing what will likely be the last recorded testimony of a generation that lived through the Dust Bowl. You'll also see rare film footage and previously unpublished photographs.

Experience the magnitude of the worst sustained environmental disaster in U.S. history. Tune in to watch the conclusion of The Dust Bowl tonight at 8, only on ValleyPBS.
