    The 1930s were the great depression years where many people struggled to survive.  Many who had loans out on their homes or land and even businesses generally lost everything.  Many men who could not support their families just left them and headed out on the road and climbed onto trains to try and find work.  So many people were hungry that some men even committed crimes so they would be put in  prison so they could be fed.

      Men moved where ever they heard there may be work so men were moving.  In the USA it was only when WW2 started that suddenly there was plenty of work for all.

    Great Depression.  Everyone was either unemployed or lost their farm because of drought and bank seizures.  The movie/book The Grapes of Wrath gives you the picture

    Emigration from where?   And, less important, to where? And, indeed, which century?  - though somehow I suspect the 20th century.

    Gale-force winds. Those airy badboys just blew people from one end of the continent to the other.
