Flight Dreams: A Life in the Midwestern Landscape

Front Cover
University of Iowa Press, Jan 1, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 286 pages
Reminiscent of Thoreau's introspective nature writing and Dillard's taut, personal prose, each chapter in Flight Dreams stands alone as a distinct narrative, yet each is linked by profoundly personal descriptions of dreams, the natural world, defining experiences, and chance encounters with people that later prove to be fateful. Part Eastern meditation, part dream sequence, part historical reconstruction, Flight Dreams testifies to a deep understanding of how the natural world - its visible and invisible elements - guides our destinies.
