This new series, hailed as 'a wonderful idea' by Don DeLillo, both restores to print and introduces for the first time some of the greatest works of the genre. "Great Plains" is a journey through the vast and myth-inspiring empty plains - from tumbleweed and American Indian tepees to the house where Bonnie and Clyde did their dirty work to the scene of the murders in Capote's "In Cold Blood".Hide synopsis

This is a book written the way a good friend would describe the travels he has made. The specific landscapes are there but the choicest parts are the encounters with the people. Wonderful stories that made me want to embark on a trip somewhere. Great writing.
Ian Frazier presents his impressions of the Great Plains as a whole portion of the central states but more interesting is his interaction with various Indians and their take on their history. This book makes you want to go and see this area yourself, for beauty, for history and for the open sky and plains. A Very Good Read.
