The name you choose for yourself is more your own than the name you were born with. And if I was you I’d choose another name than Lizzie. – Starbuck
A stirring and humor-filled American classic that inspires one to believe in the unbelievable.
During the hard years of a dust bowl drought, the Curry family’s cattle ranch is on the verge of failure. Hardworking and plain, Lizzie is the only woman in a family of men who are trying to find her a husband. She is about to give up on love and commit herself to care for her wise rancher father and two polar-opposite brothers. When charismatic traveler Starbuck breezes onto their doorstep, he promises that for $100 he can summon rain to the barren land. The smooth-talking Starbuck turns his magic onto the clouds, Lizzie and the entire Curry family.
“[The Rainmaker‘s] underlying theme – the need for faith in oneself and others – is universal.” – Chicago Reader
“After nearly half a century, The Rainmaker still makes a…case for miracles.” – Los Angeles Times
