Editorial Reviews


"More than corn grows tall on the American Plains. Here for the delectation of amateur folklorists is a collection of country whoppers from the frontier of Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa--funny and fantastic yarns and anecdotes of pioneer vintage that belie the erroneous notion that the men and women who settled the Plains were ''grimly serious'' forerunners of Grant Wood''s farming couple."--"Publishers Weekly"

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By gayle bendinelli on August 21, 1999
Format: Paperback
Roger paints with words Norman Rockwell's America. We can look at his beloved Nebraska through the eyes of those who faced the extreme conditions of plains life. The wry and often outrageous stories, poetry and songs bring us back to a simpler but not easier day. Roger reminds us that the American spirit is strong and resilient as well as creative. Thank you Roger for taking the time to be pleasant.
