A speck of dust is a tiny thing. In fact, five of them could fit into the period at the end of this sentence.     On a clear warm Sunday, April 14, 1935, a wild wind whipped up millions upon millions of these specks of dust to form a duster-a savage storm-on America's high southern plains.     The sky turned black, sand-filled winds scoured the paint off houses and cars, trains derailed, and electricity coursed through the air. Sand and dirt fell like snow-people got lost in the gloom and suffocated . . .    And that was just the beginning.    Don Brown brings the Dirty Thirties to life with kinetic, highly saturated, and lively artwork  in this graphic novel of one of America's most catastrophic natural events: The Dust Bowl.

Don Brown is the award-winning author and illustrator of many picture book biographies. He has been widely praised for his resonant storytelling and his delicate watercolor paintings that evoke the excitement, humor, pain, and joy of lives lived with passion. School Library Journal has called him “a current pacesetter who has put the finishing touches on the standards for storyographies.” He lives in New York with his family.
