Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“When statistics were collected a few years later, only 400,000 homesteading families had managed to persevere on the plains, of more than a million who tried. The Homestead Acts had been a relative success in the East. West of the hundredth meridian, however, they were for the most part a failure, even a catastrophic failure. Much of the blame rested on flaws in the acts themselves, and on the imperfections of human nature, but a lot of it was the fault of the weather. How could you settle a region where you nearly froze to death one year and expired from heat and the lack of water during the next eight or nine?”

–Marc Reisner, from “Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water” (1986) [Click on the image or the link to buy the book.]
