The Devil in the Dust Bowl
It is the mid 1930’s, and the United States is suffering from the worst drought in history. Crops won’t grow, food is scarce, and massive winds carry tons of choking dust a thousand miles across the country.

Caleb’s story would be not be exceptional except for his claim that the salesman was, in reality, the Devil walking the earth. And that he challenged him and lived to tell the tale.
