When the American West was opened up, many a traveler passed over the rich earth that lay on top of the territory of Nebraska. The dirt is rich, black dirt, but they could see no water anywhere. They thought this land would be good for nothing. One writer even called it, “The Great America Desert”. Some even died while on their journey, for lack of refreshment.

Nebraska is now serious about farming. It has been called a bread basket for our nation. More wheat, and more corn are grown there than almost any other state in the union. What happened? What made the difference that those early travelers couldn’t see. They failed to realize, that under the state of Nebraska, is an underground lake, an aquifer that lies under 2/3’s the state of Nebraska. Some one got the bright idea to dig down and found all the water they needed to turn the “Great American Desert” into the bread basket of America.
