Noah Gordon, youngest son of Scottish Earl Hugh Gordon, immigrated to America in the 1800’s seeking a new life. He found romance, adventure, and hardship, and his strength of character steered the course for his family through the decades. That spirit led great-granddaughter Thelma and her husband, H.E. Wyatt to leave Arkansas for Nebraska during the 1930’s Depression. With five children to feed and clothe, H.E. worked at corn shucking and odd jobs for the farmers around Lisco, Nebraska; anything he could get to make a dollar. F.D.R’s election and subsequent programs for the poor lifted them from poverty, and life improved. The older girls grew up and moved to California, finally enticing their parents to follow. With H.E.’s well-paying job, the Wyatts purchased their first home. Life flowed along after the Second World War ended, and Norma and Faye moved back to Nebraska with their husbands and children. The 1949 blizzard hit the state shortly after the family’s return. The massive storm hammered the ranching community, where 1000’s of livestock died. Rural residents were stranded in their homes, and the Army moved in to open roads and restore power. Part 2 consists of letters from James, the Wyatt’s only son. He journalized his Korean War experiences daily. After months of heavy combat he was discharged without a scratch, and nothing prepared the family for his death from leukemia several years later. The epilogue sums up the family history, and the dream the prefaced Thelma’s death at 95.
