128 pages, 8.5x9.75", 48 photographs, softbound.

"Battling blazing sun, gritty dust, dizzying heights, and unfriendly rattlesnakes the windmillers of Burdick & Burdick Company in El Paso crossed the Southwest during the Great Depression bringing windmills and water to the parched land. From 1923 to 1942, Burdick photographed his men at work. Those photos, paired with Baker's text, shape Burdick's memories into a fascinating story."
