Praise For…


"A good hearted book about the heart of the country." The New York Times

"Our modern-day Walden." The Chicago Sun-Times

"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." The Hungry Mind Review
