Product Description

There is an old proverb from Eastern Europe that says, "Who does not thank for little, will not thank for much." In other words, the person who goes through life being thankful for God's gifts and blessings usually experiences more of life's goodness - and inhabits more of God's blessings.

This beautiful book challenges people to live in a way that blesses God, from whom all good things come. Reflections from a wide array of authors are included: Henry Van Dyke, Abraham Lincoln, and Louisa May Alcott, as well as many songs, psalms, and prayers.

Editorial Reviews

Readers that enjoy Christian writing, ancient and contemporary, will find enjoyment in this small book
There are quotes from Meister Eckhart and Albert Einstein, and poems by William Shakespeare. There is even a short story by Louisa May Alcott. Readers are provided prompts to list their blessings and include their own thoughts on thanksgiving. —Barb Kummer, The Phoenix Spirit

A respected author and scholar, Paul A. Johnsgard has spent a lifetime observing the natural delights of Nebraska's woodlands, grasslands, and wetlands. Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie collects his musings on Nebraska's natural history and the issues of conservation facing our future. In "Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie: A Nebraska Year", Professor Johnsgard crafts essays featuring snow geese, owls, hummingbirds, and other creatures against the backdrop of Great Plains landscapes. He describes prairie chickens courting during predawn hours and the calls of sandhill cranes; he evokes the magic of lying upon the prairie, hearing only the sounds of insects and the wind through the grasses. From reflections following a visit to a Pawnee sacred site to meditations on the perils facing the state's finite natural resources, "Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie: A Nebraska Year" celebrates the gifts of a half century spent roaming Nebraska's back roads, trails, and sometimes-forgotten places.
Drawing upon his many years of experience, observation, and expertise, Paul A. Johnsgard (Foundation Regents Professor Emeritus, School of biological Sciences, University of Nebraska-Lincoln) has written an impressively informed and informative compendium essays deftly organized into three major sections: Wild Places and National Treasures; Seasonal Enchantments; The View from a High Hill. A simply wonderful read from beginning to end, "Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie: A Nebraska Year" is enhanced with the inclusion of an appendices (Latin Names of Plants and Animals Mentioned in the Text) and a list of Bibliographic Sources. An extraordinary anthology that will delight the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the natural world in general, and Nebraska's countryside in particular, it should be noted that "Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie: A Nebraska Year" is also available in a Kindle edition ($11.52). —John Burroughs, The Midwest Book Review
