Colby, Kansas, 1933. As the dark clouds of the economic depression settle over the country, another dark storm rages on the High Plains. From the panhandle of Texas to western Nebraska another battle begins, 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 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. All during a time when men needed more than just food, they needed hope. Demonstrating that through hard work and common sense, farming on the high plains was possible under the most adverse conditions. Through their efforts, GK Farms became one of the largest wheat operations on the plains and yielded Garvey and Kriss a record crop in 1947. "Harvesting the High Plains" celebrates the progressive search for agricultural answers in the face of the dustbowl, changing the Great American Desert into the Breadbasket of the World.

I originally happened in on the middle of this piece while channel-surfing one evening while this was airing on PBS, and ordered copies of the DVD. The story tells how two men with a vision overcame tremendous difficulties of an extreme multi-year drought and a Depression and ultimately transformed the high plains from a near-desert into productive farmland. I found this story both fascinating and inspiring.
