Life on the Great Plains wasn't easy, as the settlers who took advantage of the Homestead Act of 1862 discovered. They persevered as they drove the Native Americans onto reservations and experimented with the newly invented farm machinery, until the dustbowl of the 1930s discouraged new settlements. Includes teacher's guide and blackline masters.
