America was headed toward years of economical calamity in 1928, prompting the Colliers to leave their Kentucky home and head west. Solomon (Sod) Collier, with his family, packed into a small pickup truck. With 15 cents in his pocket, the Colliers went off looking for the opportunity of a lifetime. Here in Arkansas, land was still available under the 1862 Homestead Act. Although the prime bottomland was taken, pockets along the slopes and ridges remained unclaimed.
