At the time of a paralyzing drought in the West a family is worried about their dying cattle. Added on top of this worry is the daughter, Lizzie.

The two brothers and father are convinced that she is becoming an old maid. The brothers try every possible scheme to marry her off, but without success. Nor is there any sign of relief from the dry heat, when suddenly from out of nowhere appears Starbuck, a fast-talking, charismatic man with quite the sales pitch.

Claiming to be a "rainmaker," he promises to bring rain, for only $100. After being welcomed in, Starbuck lights a powder keg of potential within this tightly knit family.

"Admirable skill... [and] insight into the human heart.... The touch of a poet.... A hit you must see." - N.Y. Mirror.

I began piano lessons at age 6, trumpet at age 9, and began teaching myself the guitar at 10. My electronics knowledge comes from my father, who had the RCA television and stereo shop in my hometown of Pocahontas, Arkansas for nearly 20 years. My dad is still fixing televisions at age 79.
