Chrisman 1957 west of Liberal, Kansas [note] Victim of the Plow Pioneer cattlemen told early settlers that it would be difficult to make a living by the plow on the arid southwest plains. But nothing could stop the tide of settlement. An Indian, looking at the plowed earth, grunted: "white man heap fool; turn earth upside down." Though the wind has always blown over the southwest plains, causing "sandstorms," it created small damage until the great plows turned the buffalo grass under. Then the earth began to move. Thousands of acres of land were rendered fit only for Soil Bank use. Some has been re-seeded to grass. This photo was taken in 1957 four miles west of Liberal, Kansas. Photo by Author.
