The Grapes of Wrath
"As the sharp sun struck day after day, the leaves of the young corn became less stiff and erect; they bent in a curve at first, and then, as the central ribs of strength grew weak, each leaf tilted downward." -The Grapes of Wrath
Dust storms were so bad they would cover houses and dust would get in every little crack.
Men, women, and children cover their faces while outside to protect themselves from breathing in the dusty air that is flying around them.
Many families packed up all their belongings that would fit onto their cars and headed towards California.
"The men in the fields looked up at the clouds, rain-heads, and sniffed at them and held wet fingers up to sense the wind" - The Grapes of Wrath
