A memoir, both lyrical and witty, of kinships both wild and tame


[A] humble, but no less soulful, memoir.Price easily navigates the episodes of his story, flashing back and forward, gracefully narrating the imagination of his youth.the exploration of new frontiers.and the return to familial and natural histories in western Iowa. He softly reveals the humor and uncertainty of youth and parenthood; the clarity of his nature writing exhibits the strength he finds in the ancient patterns of migratory birds and the flexibility of the Missouri River. Beyond his elegantly styled memoir, Price achieves a rich biographical portrait of the rural Midwest-its cultural and natural terrain-creating a character from the profound flatness of the region with as much life as he finds in his grandparents and children.
