Book review

Wonderful review of my book This Place, These People: Life and Shadow on the Great Plains

I particularly like the ending paragraph:

” . . . This Place, These People leaves its readers with a commemoration of the disappearing places, peoples, and voices of these most rural communities on the Great Plains. The book reads as a memory as much as a reality, and tends to its subject matter with a tenderness that speaks to the personal connection of the authors. It is a portrait in black and white, and serves well to highlight the shades of gray that come with experiencing the fade of a community and a way of living in America. ”
