“It seems fair that every region, every landscape, every place deserves a champion. The imperiled prairies of northeast Texas certainly have one in Matt White, a native son and an unabashed prairie enthusiast. Whether he is writing about mycorrhizal fungi, gilgai topography, rattlesnake master, buffalo wallows, or mima mounds, it is apparent that he lives, breathes, and relishes his subject matter. As such, he offers a credible voice and insight into the blackland prairie, its history, its residents, its architecture, and its natural diversity. His enthusiasm was obviously genuine. It was also infectious and encompassing. At times, I felt like I was right alongside him at the moment of discovery.”--Carter Smith, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

"Matt White's Prairie Time
is a timely and valuable addition to Great Plains studies."
