Thar Desert, India

Women Collecting Water in Thar Desert, IndiaNot a "Little House On The Prairie" but a little house in the Thar desert, though the story is much the same — a family struggling against all odds to live a simple life. One of the most inhospitable landscapes on earth, life here is a challenge almost beyond compare. Families often find themselves migrating miles by foot across the vast arid land in search of water, only to return to the place they call home. So whether it be on the Kansas prairie during pioneer days or in the Thar Desert of current day India, the life lessons are the same — as are the people, their dreams, and their hopes.
