Dust Covered Dreams

Dust Covered Dreams details the experiences of the Eymann family in Oakdale, Nebraska during the 1930s. Vintage photos, stories, and artifacts tell the lighter side of this family of twelve and the hardships of dust and grasshoppers. Dust covered the dreams of the Eymanns and changed their futures as it did for thousands of Nebraska families. A program for K-8 students includes hands-on activities about the 1930s dust bowl years in Nebraska.
