The Ogallala Road

A Memoir of Love and Reckoning


A love affairunfolds as crisis hits a family farm on the High Plains.

Julene Bair has inherited part of a farming empire andfallen in love with a rancher from Kansas’ beautiful Smoky Valley. A single mother, she means to provide her son with the father he longs for and preserve theBair farm for the next generation, honoring her own father’s wish and commandment,“Hang on to your land!” But part of her legacy is a share of the ecologicalharm the Bair farm has done: each growing season her family—like otherirrigators—pumps over two hundred million gallons out of the Ogallala aquifer.The rapidly disappearing aquifer is the sole source of water on the vastwestern plains, and her family’s role in its depletion haunts her. Astraditional ways of life collide with industrial realities, Bair mustdramatically change course.

Updating the territory mapped by Jane Smiley, Pam Houston,and Terry Tempest Williams, and with elements of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, TheOgallala Road tells a tale of the West today and points us toward a new wayto love both the land and one another.
