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.
