Media reviews
John Price finds his way to the heart of the grasslands that our ancestors called the great inland sea. Riding and listening and reading along with him, we learn not only about the prairie, we also learn how to be at home in our own place. Scott Russell Sanders, author of Hunting for Hope "Price's considerable wisdom and poetic vision spring from both the prairie and great prairie books. With nature as his compass and literature as his map, he conducts us on a powerful journey not just in the American grasslands, but in understanding the relationship between our identity and the places that blood and history define for us as home." Julene Bair, author of One Degree West: Reflections of a Plainsdaughter "Price gives us moments of genuine, self-deprecating humor, which, in his hands, is also wisdom."--Christopher Cokinos, author of Hope Is the Thing with Feathers: A Personal Chronicle of Vanished Birds
