What People are Saying About This
Everyone knows a little about the Dust Bowl by watching Grapes of Wrath or listening to the songs of Woody Guthrie, but little is known about the terrible events of April 14, 1935. Stallings has taken oral history along with newspaper, weather and agricultural reports to blend together a great accounting of that day. Some of the remembrances are humorous, but many tell a story that lives were never the same after Black Sunday. Included are some poems and songs about that day. Some sages declare that prairie dogs were so confused that "they start to dig upwards." One claim that "you could poke a hole in the sky with your finger." All remembered removing bushels of dirt and sand from their homes. Black Sunday is needed if one is to have a complete picture of life in Texas. Get a copy, you’ll be glad you did.
