"Much of my adventures in Kansas has been spent in pursuit of what I call 'wild space'—uncluttered landscapes that embody a quiet beauty that eludes the hurried and undiscriminating eye. Kansas abounds in such beauty, and the photographs I've chosen for this book are intended to celebrate its abundance and variety."—Daniel D. Dancer, from the Preface

Overview

"Much of my adventures in Kansas has been spent in pursuit of what I call 'wild space'—uncluttered landscapes that embody a quiet beauty that eludes the hurried and undiscriminating eye. Kansas abounds in such beauty, and the photographs I've chosen for this book are intended to celebrate its abundance and variety."—Daniel D. Dancer, from the Preface

"So what is the truth of Kansas? This is what: Kansas is a complexity of moving points, a land of tilts and shifts, a region full of lives and ideas going this way and that and not infrequently colliding. It is the heartland of America, indeed, but not simply in the way popularly understood; it also beats at our center because, like the whole nation, it moves in turbulence, in fitfulness, and, somehow between times, in beauty."—William Least Heat-Moon, from the Introduction
