A beautiful meditation on life in the Great Plains from award-winning author and poet Kathleen Norris.
Kathleen Norris invites readers to experience rich moments of prayer and presence in Dakota, a timeless tribute to a place in the American landscape that is at once desolate and sublime, harsh and forgiving, steeped in history and myth. In thoughtful, discerning prose, she explores how we come to inhabit the world we see, and how that world also inhabits us. Her voice is a steady assurance that we can, and do, chart our spiritual geography wherever we go.
Claire Carmichael5 Stars Out Of 5January 25, 2001Claire CarmichaelAs a native of North Dakota, the geography drew me to the book. What held me -- and what draws me back to this volume again and again -- is the insight, the depth of thought, and the constancy of faith it describes. Norris' use of language is rich and powerful. I'll wear this volume out before I tire of it!
