Series Title The Plow That Broke the Plains

Filmmaker Pare Lorentz


The first fence. Progress came to the plains.

High winds and sun. High winds and sun. A country without rivers, and with little rain. Settler, plow at your peril.

Two hundred miles from water! Two hundred miles from town! But the land is new.
