The Ogallala Road
A Memoir of Love and ReckoningDownloadable Audiobook - 2014
Julene Bair has inherited part of a farming empire and means to create a family and preserve the Bair farm for the next generation. But part of her legacy is a share of the ecological harm the Bair farm has done as it pumps over two hundred million gallons out of the Ogallala aquifer each growing season. The rapidly disappearing aquifer is the sole source of water on the vast western plains, and her family's role in its depletion haunts her. As traditional ways of life collide with industrial realities, Bair must dramatically change course. The Ogallala Road tells a tale of the West today and points us toward a new way to love both the land and one another.
