As they struggle to keep their hemp farm intact through the throes of the Great Depression, the Burnetts discover, much to their dismay, that the failing U.S.

economy is the least of their problems. A powerful anti-hemp lobby is trying to destroy their livelihood.The barons of Big Oil and their allies had long viewed industrial hemp as a threat to their interests. But with recent breakthroughs in hemp-processing, and rumors of a hemp-mobile by Henry Ford materializing, hemp is suddenly the crop that could put them out of business! The barons unite, raise the hemp-threat from moderate to extreme, and conspire to obliterate the worlds most useful plant.A string of coincidences converge to their advantage: Prohibition is repealed, leaving its disciples without a cause.

An obscure drug, marijuana, is vilified, and falsely equated with industrial hemp. A frustrated Prohibitionist is appointed chief of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics- and Prohibition is back - hemp, tagged as marijuana, its new target!In keeping with history, the story of HEMP ends badly. Prohibition, in all of its madness, rages on, while hemp, and its promise of a green revolution are eliminated!

Nevertheless, with guidance from an extraordinary source, the resilient Burnetts find peace and escape despair. The questions they pose at a 1937 Senate hearing, moreover, continue to haunt the reader, and provide a glimmer of hope:What shall we tell the children, Senators?

How shall we explain this folly? And when will we put it right?
