This is a fascinating, heartbreaking book about America's worst man made catastrophe, and how we seem on course to repeat it. I did not see the series on PBS but the memories of those who lived through it are completely engrossing. It really makes you realize the "hardships" that most people claim to experience today, PALE in comparison to what people had to endure during the great depression, the dust bowl, and WWII. I highly recommend this book.
