The Tallgrass Prairie Reader (Edited by John T. Price)
University of Iowa Press
(From the book copy) The Tallgrass Prairie Reader is a first-of-its-kind collection of literature from and about the
tallgrass bioregion. Focusing on autobiographical nonfiction in a wide
variety of forms, voices, and approaches from 42 authors—Aldo Leopold, William Least Heat Moon, Louise Erdrich, Mark Twain, and others -- including adventure narrative,
spiritual reflection, childhood memoir, Native American perspectives,
literary natural history, humor, travel writing and reportage—Price honors
the ecological diversity of tallgrass itself and provides a range of
models for nature writers and students.
Cindy will be reading her essay from The Tallgrass Prairie Reader and signing books at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) on Saturday, October 11. Details coming soon!
