Stories, Songs and Sodbusters

Homesteaders, following a different dream, went west and stayed. Braving the “Great American Desert” with hand tools and a bucket of hope, they sang about the land of milk and honey. By the time they’d settled on their claims their songs included lyrics about alkali water, grasshopper plagues, chickens with the pip, leaky sod huts and coyotes at the door.

 About the presenter: Bill Rossiter taught at Flathead Valley Community College in Montana and is also a member of the Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau.

The Lights Go Out: World War I and American Culture
