The area where this movie is set, south central Nebraska, was at the time referred to as the "Great American Desert", due to a lack of forestation and ground water. However, lying just below the surface is the Oglalla Aquifer, one of the world's largest underground water tables, in the south central Nebraska region, where the water table may be as close as six feet below the ground. Tapping the Oglalla Aquifer, along with irrigation from numerous small rivers, transformed the Great American Desert into a highly productive agricultural area. See more »
