Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kansas-born Rhodes ( A Hole in the World: An American Boyhood ) updates his first book by adding four new essays to the 12 best of his original pieces about life in the Midwest. ``A mosaic of chapters that trace, explore, examine with mature objectivity, but above all celebrate the essential spirit and virtues of the `freedom' of the prairies,'' said PW of the 1970 original.

Review

"A very American book, written with a warm and compelling intelligence." -- Harper's Magazine

"Celebrate the essential spirit and virtues of the 'freedom' of the prairies. An exceptional book." -- Publishers Weekly

"On the subjects of wheat, coyote hunting, hog butchering, Truman, and Eisenhower, Rhodes is poetic." -- Indiana Magazine of History

"The mysteries of this Inland Ground are teasingly hinted at and sometimes brilliantly illuminated." -- New York Times Book Review
