really liked it
bookshelves: favorites, beautiful-books

I love this book, everything about it, except the title which doesn't do the writing style and the voice justice. I particularly recommend this book if you grew up in Iowa or the Midwest, but also for anyone interested in thinking about eco-issues, the green movement, simplifying life or talking about American cultural history. It is preserved here in clear, precise and wam, familial detail.
