The Dust Bowl was the largest ecological disaster in United States history, coinciding with the nation's worst economic crisis, the Great Depression of the 1930s. Massive dust storms, combined with nearly a decade of drought, wreaked havoc on parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Arkansas. The storms were a relentless threat to the environment and the health and welfare of those in their path. The effects of the dust storms were far-reaching, impacting not just the farmers and their families, but the state of California. Many who were forced off their land viewed the state as a mecca and it became the new home for millions of former Midwesterners. However, many families stayed in the Great Plains and reluctantly turned to the federal government for assistance to make ends meet. The government's new role as a provider of economic relief and social aid was met with gratitude by some and anger by others. In this book, Brinkley will take you through a short history of the "Dirty Thirties." HistoryCaps is an imprint of BookCaps Study Guides. With each book, a brief period of history is recapped.

This collection is a melting pot for varied art forms of poetry including prose, spoken word, rhymes etc. and is vibrant with deep truths, stark naked realities, messages of liberation, gripping tales and an intricate weave of scriptures to communicate its main theme - a call for Christians as God's covenant people to 'arise and shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you, for behold the darkness shall cover the earth', just as rainbow - God's covenant in flood - emerges in the sky reflecting the shining sunlight through the onrushing rain. Four sub-themes, however, resonates from this overarching theme: firstly, there can be no shining outside an intimate relationship with God, secondly, it does not seem to be an option for Christians to want to shine, it is included in the full package of salvation, thirdly and perhaps hard to swallow, trials and tribulations are active ingredients used in polishing the lustre of the precious metal of faith. Lastly and not to suggest the least of the themes, it is apparent that our light only glows brightly in deep darkness when we meet the needs of others. How all these are expressed in poetry is left for you to find out, as you peruse through the pages of this book.
Language acquisition is a human endeavor par excellence. As children, all human beings learn to understand and speak at least one language: their mother tongue. It is a process that seems to take place without any obvious effort. Second language learning, particularly among adults, causes more difficulty. The purpose of this series is to compile a collection of high-quality monographs on language acquisition. The series serves the needs of everyone who wants to know more about the problem of language acquisition in general and/or about language acquisition in specific contexts.
