This book tells a story of my uncle, Dale Goldsmith, and his lifelong relationship to a land that many see as worthless. The short grass prairie is a vast sea of what looks to outsiders to be decidedly empty space. For those who love this land, however, there is much to “see.” That seeing, though, takes a careful eye, a quiet introspection, a strength to look within and see the common thread that ties us all to the landscape without.



Short Summary

After my uncle Dale’s death, I returned to the farm where I’d spent many summers in order to sort through his possessions. The sheer volume of historical artifacts I found was staggering and told a remarkable story of survival.
