To understand the similarities between the stories of Ashputtle and Walt Disney’s Cinderella one must know the stories first. Ashputtle, the story of a young girl who is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters. Her only friend is a dove that sits in the tree above her mother’s grave. One day, an announcement is made that a gala will be held for three nights so that the prince can pick a wife. Ashputtle’s stepmother refuses to allow her to go until she has done several impossible tasks.
She is portrayed as perfectly innocent and sweet. The fact that they made the ruby slippers heels, a more grown-up shoe, is also telling. They originally belonged, we assume, to a grown-up witch - but when Dorothy has her black utilitarian flats traded for the very sexy red heels - it makes her seem one step closer to adult-hood. Her hairstyle is also eventually made more grown-up; once she reaches Oz, her braids are traded in for a looser style. On the other hand, the Wicked Witch of the West has a green face which indicates to the audience that she is evil and unfriendly.

The photo became an icon of the Dust Bowl; showing a farmer and his two sons during a dust storm in Oklahoma. Very different from Lange’s method of documentary photography, Rothstein would be a director, recreating a dust storm. Photographing during a dust storm is not only dangerous but nearly impossible due to the low visibility. By staging the scene Rothstein is able to capture the impact of these storms on the land and people in safe conditions of low winds and high visibility. By asking people to reenact what they would have otherwise done in such a circumstance he is able to capture the unpredictability of these storms which caused immediate fear and
During the Great Depression a Midwestern phenomenon called the Dust Bowl affected many lives of newly settled Americans throughout the Great Plains region. Otherwise known as the “Dirty Thirties”, a storm of dry weather caused farmers and villagers to abandon their homes in hope to survive the deadly threat of the storm. The Dust Bowl was a big contributing factor to the Great Depression agriculturally, and economically. During the 1930’s America suffered extreme temperatures. A drought forming across all farm lands due to failure of successful crop rotation cause dust to form.
Electrico alive while all of the freaks, including herself, are at the carnival. The Author does this to convey the idea that the carnival is the Home of the Dust Witch; it is her lair, where she is most powerful and dangerous. Secondly, in page 114, Bradbury uses the words said by the Dust Witch when she keeps Mr. Cooger/Electrico alive through electricity after he got deathly old on the carousel. The author does this to show that the Dust Witch has some kind of connection to not only the carnival, but also the freaks who operate, perform, and are also connected to the carnival. Lastly, in page 241, the author describes the final act of the carnival: the bullet catching trick, and how the Dust Witch is being forced to perform the trick.
The Dust Bowl was caused by a variety of unfortunate circumstances at the worst time. The dust bowl refers the 1930’s when during the Great Depression, powerful winds ripped off the top soil (the soil that is best used for farming) and killed many crops. The farmers that were hit the hardest were the ones in the southern great plains. This region was soon known as the Dust Bowl. In the off season, farmers would plant grass to keep the topsoil from being taken with the wind.
Another big factor of the Dust Bowl was the drought. The National Drought Migration Center that is in Nebraska said: "Many crops were damaged by deficient rainfall, high temperatures, and high winds, as well as insect infestations and dust storms that accompanied these conditions" (University of Nebraska). Nebraska was hit hard by the dust storms and was and is still a big farming community, the drought feed the effects of the Dust Bowl hugely, with high temperatures, dying crops, insect problems and of course the giant dust storms. These things made it extremely hard to live there and to farm, this drove people out for the land looking for new work and frankly, a less dusty place. The drought made it hard to go to school, to make dinner, it made people sick and combined with the over plowing of the topsoil it made dust storms unforgettable to
