I did watch the Dust Bowl miniseries first, and they do cover some of the same ground, though with different focuses, but I feel like you get more details from this book.
To be fair, it is rough. There are a few main people that you follow and they are constantly defeated by the land, dying broke, or physically broken, and any chances for renewal and success have to wait for the next generation. Even as things get better, there are indications that we are on the same path, not just in other places, but even right there with the demands on the Oglalla.
That's why it is so timely, and so important. Humans don't change much, and they will keep making the same mistakes over and over again unless information, and education, can change that.
Real people living in hell managed to survive one of America's worst nightmares and still loved the land that betrayed them. These were survivors...brave, bold and maybe just a little bit crazy, few abandoning the plains where hearts never lost sight of hope.
Truly a must read for all ages.
