Like Jacob's angel, the region requires that you wrestle with it before it bestows a blessing." In a voice as authentic as the land she describes, poet Kathleen Norris transports us to the heart of the country, America's empty quarter, a "spiritual" geography often devoid of human presence but rich in other life. A sublime physical landscape, for Norris it is also a metaphor for the indomitable human spirit. Nearly twenty years ago, Kathleen Norris returned to the house built by her grandparents in an isolated town on the border between North and South Dakota. The elemental landscape forced her to confront and reexamine her heritage, religion, language, and the land itself.

A portrait of the people and land of the Dakotas. Poet, essayis Kathleen Norris (1947-) considers the inner and outer scenery of the Great Plains with portraits of Native Americans, Benedictine monks, ministers and churchgoers, wind-weathered farmers, and all its plain folks who live complicated yet simple lives in an expanse of desolate yet sublime landscape. The sub-title, "A Spiritual Geography", is most well chosen.
