Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Kathleen Norris is the author of two books of poetry, Falling Off (1971) and The Middle of the World (1981) and has received awards from the Guggenheim and Bush foundations. She lives in Lemmon, South Dakota, with her husband.

    As 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!
