Alexandra Bergson inherits the family farm after her father dies. Through harvest, drought and poverty she struggles to carve a home and a fortune from the windswept prairie all while keeping her three younger brothers together until they are ready to stand on their own. In the process, she makes a place for herself in a male-dominated, early 20th century community through her intellect and strong will.
