Beginning with the stock market collapse of 1929, The 1930s looks at the creation of FDR's Tree Army' the construction of one of the greatest engineering projects of the modern era; the impact of the catastrophic drought that transformed the plains; and an unlikely hero that gave downtrodden Americans hope. This collection of American Experience films examines America's response to the unprecedented threats facing the nation during one of history's most tumultuous decades--one that is increasingly a touchstone for our own. The Crash of 1929. The Civilian conservation Corps. Hoover Dam. Surviving the dust Bowl. Seabiscuit.
