PrairyErth: (a Deep Map)

Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1999 - 634 Seiten
Bill McKibben has called this book "the deepest map anyone ever made of an American place"--a majestic survey of land and time and people in a single county of the Kansas plains. It takes the author--by car, on foot, and in mind--into the core of our continent and backward and forward through a brilliant spectrum of time and place. There is no other book like it.
