This Place, These People: Life and Shadow on the Great Plains Hardcover – November 19, 2013
|New from||Used from|
I was very moved by this evocative, literate, and informative book. Warner's beautiful―and painful―photographs are a perfect companion to Stark's writing and the 'voices' of the Nebraskans that are included. I am very grateful for this sensitive and sad look back. (Ruth Silverman, former associate curator of the International Center of Photography and two-time winner of the Photography-Book-of-the-Year award for The Dog and Athletes)
Richly nuanced. (Publishers Weekly)
A melancholy, touching look at a vanishing way of life. (Sarah Bryan Miller St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
Each photo presents a snapshot of a place vacated. Together, they tell a larger story of an America fading into the landscape.... Conversations, captured by Stark, are sprinkled throughout the book, bringing insight and understated humor to the inanimate beauty of Warner's photographs. (Casey Logan The Omaha World Herald)
A moving collection... The country and the book are spacious, the stories are moving, and the photographs are wonderful. (RALPH magazine)
Quietly evocative (Billings Gazette)
