LIFE: Dust Bowl survivors | Photo Gallery – Yahoo! News

    Not originally published in LIFE. Farmer and sons, Oklahoma, 1942. (Alfred Eisenstaedt—Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images) As fears of another and perhaps even more devastating Dust Bowl grip vast regions of the country, LIFE.com offers a series of rare photos — most of which never ran in LIFE magazine — by the great Alfred Eisenstaedt. But these pictures don’t follow “Okies” as they leave their world behind. Instead, Eisenstaedt’s photos chronicle the hardscrabble existence of Oklahoma farmers who stayed: families who fought to keep their livelihoods and their homesteads during those lean, unforgiving years after the Dust Bowl — according to the history books, at least — came to an end.
