Steinbeck, John. Tortilla Flat   VC-4927
"Above the town of Monterey on the California coast lies the shabby district of Tortilla Flat, inhabited by a colorful gang whose revels recall the exploits of King Arthur's knights. Soft-hearted, unquestioningly loyal to one another, and in complete disregard of social conventions and expectations, the gutsy denizens of Tortilla Flat cheerfully reside in a world of idyllic poverty." (Plover Library)
John Steinbeck   VC-4155
Shows John Steinbeck as more than a realist chronicler of the Great Depression. His rich fantasy life and fascination with Arthurian tales provide another dimension to his work. Drawing on archival photographs and film, as well as specially shot footage in the locations he made famous - the Salinas Valley, Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur - sets his writings and his life in perspective, providing a new interpretation of Steinbeck's work.

The remarkable story of the determined people who clung to their homes and way of life, enduring drought, dust, disease--even death--for nearly a decade.

(Plover Library)
New Deal for the Dust Bowl 1931 - 1945   VC-2833
Focuses on farm families during 1931 - 1945 to illustrate the hardships brought on by the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl.
