        MISSION US: Up from the Dust

        In MISSION 5: Up from the Dust, students playing the game assume the roles of Frank and Ginny Dunn, twins growing up on a wheat farm in the Texas Panhandle. The game begins in summer 1929, as the Dunn family is preparing to plant their wheat crop. Drought and the country's economic problems create many challenges for the family. Over the next few years, the Dunns witness how the Great Depression affects not only their neighbors in Texas, but people all across the United States.
