Photographs and text of the land and the people who live within the ten Great Plains states from Montana and North Dakota to the Texas Panhandle. Interviewed and photographed are farmers, ranchers, wheat whackers, cowboys, well driller, vintners, school teachers, Native Americans and others. The talk about living in a land harsh but free. This is an historical and important document as the Plains, in places, loses its people and recedes into frontier land.

Review:

Peter Miller's handsome volume documents a freewheeling investigation into the American heartland, a journey born of curiosity about the rugged, resilient individualists who people the region. The author, a former Life reporter, has a knack for pulling pithy quotes out of interview subjects that equals his finesse with the variety of cameras used to vividly record this odyssey. Along the way we meet a Texas eccentric who believes that the 8 percent of the United States population who live in the flatlands are the only ones who count and a Montana rancher who refused to talk to Miller until she determined that he was not an "environmentalist shyster" like those threatening her way of life.
