Fields of golden sunflowers, dense stands of corn, thousands of acres of waving wheat lie beneath the hot summer sun. Fields of dreams, in North Dakota. Straight, lightly traveled rural highways crisscross the endless flat farmland. The country road rolls through one farm town after another, past an occasional country cemetery, where tilted headstones mark the dreams of other times. Hawks cruise lazily over freshly plowed fields awaiting the late hay crop, looking for mice and insects.
