"When the dust storms of the 1930s threatened to destroy U.S. farming and agriculture, Hugh Bennett knew what to do.

He knew what to do for weathering and erosion. To do that, he needed the government's help. But how do you convince politicians that the soil needs help? Hugh Bennett knew what to do. He waited for the wind" -- Back cover.
