Summary
Colby, Kansas, 1933. As the dark clouds of the economic depression settle over the country, another dark storm rages in the High Plains. From the panhandle of Texas to western Nebraska, there is a battle with an even greater foe and one far less forgiving: nature. Rising out of the dust, came two men Ray Garvey and John Kriss who believed the ground in western Kansas and eastern Colorado were fertile and capable of raising wheat-- all at a time when the world needed more than just food, it needed hope"--Container
