Amber Waves of Change: Dust Bowl Revisited? (Part 2)

Most of western Kansas is still facing drought conditions that rival the Dirty Thirties of the Great Depression.  University of Kansas Journalism Professor David Guth has been traveling the region, conducting interviews with residents for an upcoming book.  In this report, Guth says there’s a question looming in the minds of many western Kansans: Will the days of the Dust Bowl return?


(This is part two in a four-part series titled, “Amber Waves of Change,” where we hear about issues affecting the rural Midwest.)

 

University of Kansas Journalism Professor David Guth is also a commentator for Kansas Public Radio. He's authored a special series of commentaries on KPR called "Amber Waves of Change."
