Overview

"Rutledge is direct, honest, unafraid, probing, questioning, informative. Her book is at once intensely personal and universally important. Her fine and moving diary understands the prairie, speaks to fundamental Midwestern values, and makes me glad to live in Kansas, near the hills she writes of so eloquently."—Thomas Fox Averill, editor of What Kansas Means to Me

It has the same freshness, honesty, lack of pretension and provides us with an oftentimes ignored view of an 'ordinary' woman's life on the plains."—Mary Swander, author of Driving the Body Back
