James isn't happy at home and on the farm. He leaves for a new job opportunity. To get to California he takes a train. In the middle of James' trip, he gets caught in the Dust Bowl. Once he gets to California he starts his new job but realizes he misses home. He returns and happily works on the farm.
I'm sorry your not happy, but nobody is these days.
Ugh. I hate this farm.
Oh, how I will miss you.
I'm leaving for California for a better job opportunity.
