Biblical Dust Bowl Reference

This sounds like a clear reference to The Dust Bowl in the US in the 1930s. Reading Timothy Eagan’s book, “The Worst Hard Time,” it is easy to understand how many Okies and others living in the dust bowl during that time believed God had placed a curse on the land.

The prairie was never meant to be plowed up recklessly and irresponsibly as it was in the late 1920s.

Deuteronomy 28:24

“The Lord will change the rain that falls on your land into powder, and dust will pour down from the sky until you are destroyed.”
