If you've enjoyed our "Out of the Dust" series in print these past four days, you can learn more by visiting our special multimedia presentation of the package on our Web site. Point your browser to www.modbee.com/outofthedust, and you'll find the series come to life. Many of the people whose stories were told in the paper consented to interviews on video, so you can see and hear them tell their stories in detail. The multimedia package pulls together all the stories in our series, displays photos that didn't make it into print and provides links to other resources on the Dust Bowl.
If you'd like to share your family's stories about the Dust Bowl and the migration to California, we'd love to hear them and share them with other readers. Please e-mail your story, in 200 words or less, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll post those stories online in the multimedia package.
