We brought “Homesteaders, Poor and Dry,” a beautiful and heartbreaking poem by Linda Hussa to life for the Western Folklife Center‘s Moving Rural Verse series. One of the series’ focuses is on water in the west, so we used the girl’s fear of being lowered into the well to express the larger fear of drought and thirst in the desert, and her courage to overcome that fear to convey the homesteader’s quiet resoluteness to survive in such harsh conditions. This narrative content piece was shown at the 2017 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada.
