Excerpt From The Book

To THE red country and part of the gray country of Oklahoma, the last rains came gently, and they did not cut the scarred earth.

The plows crossed and recrossed the rivulet marks. The last rains lifted the corn quickly and scattered weed colonies and grass along.

The sides of the roads so that the gray country and the dark red country began to disappear under a green cover.

In the last part of May, the sky grew pale and the clouds that had hung in high puffs for so long in the spring were dissipated.

The sun flared down on the growing corn day after day until a line of brown spread along the edge of each green bayonet.

The clouds appeared and went away, and in a while, they did not try anymore. The weeds grew darker green to protect themselves, and they did not spread anymore.

The surface of the earth crusted, a thin hard crust, and as the sky became pale, so the earth became pale, pink in the red country and white in the gray country.

In the water-cut gullies, the earth dusted down in dry little streams. Gophers and ant lions started small avalanches.

And as the sharp sun struck day after day, the leaves of the young corn became less stiff and erect; they bent in a curve at first, and then, as the central ribs of strength grew weak, each leaf tilted downward.

Then it was June, and the sun shone more fiercely. The brown lines on the corn leaves widened and moved in on the central ribs.
