Welcome to the Dust Bowl

This is an interactive game, where participants can learn about the daily struggle and decisions of a Dust Bowl family. 

You will start your journey by picking the location where you would like to start below.  To make decisions on the slides and move to the next page in the sequence, simply click on the blue highlighted links in the text.

Do you want to start in:

1) Nebraska
2) Kansas

Notes from the creators:

Throughout the sequence your gender could change, the amount of children you have could change and in the exodus timeline the time goes back to a generic beginning. 

Every dust storm in the game corresponds to roughly 10 actual dust storm, except in the case of 1938 where there were roughly 61 dust storm (but nothing else of importance happened). 2 dust storms are also missing from 1937. 

This game is a work in progress, but enjoy what has been completed thus far! Come back to see what changes!
