Literary Nonfiction. Introduction by Eric Gansworth. A seasoned storyteller's work via cut-up method, combining history and naturalist memoir, NIAGARA DIGRESSIONS presents land as historical palimpsest, from ancient cave paintings to 1960s mimeographed poetry, the massacre of the buffalo to the manufacture of shredded wheat cereal, and all points in-between. Everybody thinks they know Niagara, but not this Niagara. E. R. Baxter III is a tour guide who knows the indirect path offers the best views.
