By: Timothy Egan Quote: " The real difficulty of the semi-arid belt is not the lack of rain, but the loss of too muchby evaporation, and this can be largely controlled by proper cultivation." -Hardy Campbell Interesting Facts: - Whenever school are opened the schools don't have enough money to pay teachers so they pay them warrants. (warrants are pieces of paperthat later could be cashed in for ten dollars, but the bank doesn't take the warrants so it's just a piece of paper.) - Twenty Four cents a bushel meant that an average harvest would bring a family $400, which covered a whole year to provideenough equipment, seeds, gas, paying hired hands, interest on loans, food, shelter, and clothes. - The houses in Dalhart have walls that are fingernail thin and have ceilings that are tarpaper. Why I ChoseThis Quote: - I chose this quote because what Hardy Campbell stated was that it's notbecause there's no rain that the people may give up on the land. The reason we maygive up on the land is because of the loss of too much water evaporating from the groundbecause we can't grow crops.
