Although Kathleen Norris's best-selling "Dakota: A Spiritual Geography" has brought her to the attention of many thousands of readers, she is first and last a poet. Like Robert Frost, another poet identified with a particular landscape, she can reveal the miraculous in the ordinary, and she writes with clarity, humor, and deep sympathy for her subjects.

Praise For Little Girls in Church

“Norris’ poems are characterized by generosity and compassion, as plain and spacious as the prairie life that has engendered many of them.”
--Publishers Weekly

“A spiritual bravery allows her to live in a way that reduces external interference with teh inner voice. As a result, Norris has written some of the finest and most scrupulously honest religious poems of her generation.”
