The resonant diction and razor-keen storytelling of Hansen's earlier books echo through Nebraska. These 11 gemlike tales range from the blue heart of the blizzard of 1888 to the sweltering jungles of war, providing "dreams, myths and possibilities as vast as the Great Plains".--Washington Post Book World.
