PrairyErth

ebook

This New York Times bestseller by the author of Blue Highways is "a majestic survey of land and time and people in a single county of the Kansas plains" (Hungry Mind Review).

William Least Heat-Moon travels by car and on foot into the core of our continent, focusing on the landscape and history of Chase County—a sparsely populated tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills of central Kansas—exploring its land, plants, animals, and people until this small place feels as large as the universe.

Called a "modern-day Walden" by the Chicago Sun-Times, PrairyErth is a journey through a place, through time, and into the human mind from the acclaimed author of Here, There, Elsewhere: Stories from the Road.

"A sense of the American grain that will give [PrairyErth] a permanent place in the literature of our country." —Paul Theroux, The New York Times
