Description

National Bestseller

With his unique blend of intrepidity, tongue-in-cheek humor, and wide-eyed wonder, Ian Frazier takes us on a journey of more than 25,000 miles up and down and across the vast and myth-inspiring" Great Plains." A travelogue, a work of scholarship, and a western adventure, "Great Plains" takes us from the site of Sitting Bull's cabin, to an abandoned house once terrorized by Bonnie and Clyde, to the scene of the murders chronicled in Truman Capote's" In Cold Blood." It is an expedition that reveals the heart of the American West.
