In 1885 the condition of my father's health obliged our family to move to a drier climate and a higher altitude. In so doing, we followed the pioneers closely enough to witness the transformation of a prairie country into a Great Plains empire devoted to the growth of a grass called wheat. Among my earliest remembrances is that of a sea of other tall grasses, principally the little blue stem.
