It’s another typical early spring afternoon on the Nebraska prairie. The landscape as far in the distance as the eye can see in any direction consists of undulating waves of gray and brown. It’s cold and damp. The constant light wind would make it feel even colder if there was anything nearby to be affected by the chill. The long prairie grass is matted down and wet from recent rains, making the ground soft and mucky. The late afternoon sky is uniformly overcast like a soft gray blanket hanging overhead. The dim sunlight slowly fades away as the sun sets. The slight movement of the grass and the attendant whisper comes to a close as the wind slowly dies down. There are no artificial lights in the distance to indicate the presence of man.
