Review

Colorado author Bair recounts a story of the land and her family, the personal and the greater world, in this lovely memoir. She talks of leaving and returning to her family's Kansas farm, falling in love with a rancher there, her family's connection to the land, and the bigger picture of land and water in the West. The descriptions of the landscape--of Kansas, of the Mojave Desert where she spent much time, and of the heart, are beautiful and heartfelt, and in the midst of all the nature and connections, you'll realize that you're learning a few things about farming, irrigation, government interest in farmland, and what is being done to preserve the land and water of the West. The audio version kept me enthralled. Highly recommended.
