Eddie Jacobs dreamed of being buried under an old prickly pear tree on the farm owned by his family for four generations. But when the government ceased its policy of "buying" farmers' votes with subsidies - while an extended drought continued - Eddie was bankrupted, unable to pay back numerous loans. Thousands of other farmers and their workers faced the same plight.

THE TOOTH OF THE TIMES spends a day with Eddie; Faan, a black laborer also born and raised on the farm; and Rudy Nagel, who is charged with auctioning away Eddie's life.
