Land Circle: Writings Collected from the Land

Front Cover
ReadHowYouWant.com, 2010 - 544 pages
A new kind of rancher and a new kind of environmentalist, Linda M. Hasselstrom speaks with an eloquent simplicity in Land Circle while exploring her visceral connection with the land and the people of the Great Plains. A true voice from the heartland, Hasselstrom urges the preservation of a vanishing way of life and declares in unequivocal terms the intrinsic value of the plains. She vividly portrays both the landscape and the local sensibilities, exploring ''Where Neighbor Is a Verb,'' but also ''Why One Peaceful Woman Carries a Pistol.'' These essays, well balanced by her award-winning poems, touch on elemental themes such as grief, loss, and respect for nature with a universality that is relevant to all of our lives.
