Wayne Hughes,


Scotty McTague and his wife have returned to Texas to run his dad's custom wheat harvest business. He left a job he loved in California to do this for his dad. However, he quickly decides this is the last year. Rain and fire ruin crops. A new banker in town intent on foreclosing on and then buying up land makes it difficult for clients to pay. Equipment parts become hard to get. The crew are experienced. The youngest, Pumpkin, is still in high school and struggling. Scotty's wife becomes his tutor. Then there's Hatch, a distant cousin whom Scotty's dad insisted be hired. Scotty knew better. Hatch would rather drink than work. He disappears. Scotty bails him out of jail and sends him home. Scotty is offered a new job, and when his wife is bitten by a rattler, his decision to close the family business becomes final.
