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.

"Very early on you are convinced that the author is in love with the land he is writing about, and that he is a real writer. The mysteries of this Inland Ground are teasingly hinted at and sometimes brilliantly illuminated (as in poetically rendered essays on hog-butchering, on wheat-growing, on the Writers’ Workshop in Iowa). Mr. Rhodes has the skill and the love of language as well as of the land to bring it to our attention and our understanding."—New York Times Book Review
"Richard Rhodes’ Middle West is a sweep of the American earth from the St. Louis arch to the eastern border of Colorado. On the subjects of wheat, coyote hunting, hog butchering, Truman, and Eisenhower, Rhodes is poetic."—Indiana Magazine of History
"A very American book, written with a warm and compelling intelligence."—Harper's Magazine
"A mosaic of chapters which trace, explore, examine with mature objectivity, but above all celebrate the essential spirit and virtues of the ‘freedom’ of the prairies. An exceptional book."—Publishers Weekly
