Hardscrabble land does not compromise. It never negoLi-
ates and gives no concessions. It is harsh and surly, but
loved deeply all the same. Cherished by families who
once made their usually meager, agricultural livelihoods
on portions of Bell and Coryell counties, the hardscrabble
land of that Central Texas area was home. These places
were obliterated in the early 1940s when construction of
an Army tank-training camp displaced farmsteads and
communities for an installation that eventually encom-
passed 339 square miles. Only in memories-mostly af-
fectionate-have the hardscrabble farmsteads endured.
