Background: A drought in the American southwest threatens to reproduce the dustbowl conditions of the thirties. The Navajo Indians are being hit particularly hard, because their livelihood comes from livestock, which cannot now get enough to eat in the drought. They are trucking in water from other areas in some instances.
