September 1940. Jack Whinery, Pie Town, New Mexico, homesteader, with his wife and the youngest of his five children in their dirt-floor dugout home.
Whinery homesteaded with no cash less than a year before and does not have much equipment; consequently he and his family farm the slow, hard way, by hand.
Main window of their dugout was made from the windshield of the worn-out car which brought this family to Pie Town from West Texas.
