In 1876, during the era of the Homestead Act, two characters manipulated by language--a Missouri born sod buster and his German born wife--set their own grit against the blazing heat, frigid cold, hunger and weird mirages of the Great Plains. the American Experience is distilled into a jewel-box saga of starvation and survival. the play fulfills the dictum of a historic homesteader, "Persons afraid of coyotes and work and loneliness had better let ranching alone." Stacia Saint Owens calls it the story of the beginning of the American Dream. the play was developed in the "Experiments" series in 2001
