Abstract:

Colby, Kansas, 1933. Rising out of the dust came two men, Ray Garvey and John Kriss, who believed that the land in western Kansas and eastern Colorado was fertile and capable of producing wheat. By partnering with the land, they learned how to restore the broken plains, turning dust into fields of gold. This documentary celebrates the progressive search for the agricultural answers in the face of the dustbowl, changing the great American desert into the breadbasket of the world.
