The Time It Never Rained: "To the ranchers and farmers of 1950s Texas, man's greatest enemy is one he can't control. With entire livelihoods pegged on the chance of a wet year or a dry year, drought has the ability to crush whole enterprises, to determine who stands and falls, and to rob workers and their families of food. To Charlie Flagg, an honest, decent, and cantankerous rancher, the drought of the early 1950s is a foe he must fight on his own grounds. Refusing the questionable 'help' of federal aid programs, Charlie and his family struggle to make the ranch survive until the time it rains again--if it ever will." -- Amazon.
