Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This visual and poetic journey back to earlier times shows readers the power of the wind, the sweep of the sky, the adventures in the cold, providing a nostalgic pilgrimage to a place that symbolizes a unique lifestyle. Full color.

Synopsis:

Those born and raised on the prairies are passionate about their bittersweet experiences with this diverse land. Their memories are as valued as any relationship. If You're Not from the Prairie ... is a visual and poetic journey back to those times and the feelings they elicit. David Bouchard's evocative text reminds us of the power of the wind, the sweep of the sky, the adventures in the cold. And Henry Ripplinger's beautiful images are snapshots from the past - playing hockey on the river, lying under the big sky in a field of swaying grass, wading in a spring pond. The result is a nostalgic pilgrimage to a place that symbolizes a unique lifestyle. It is a treasure for mind and soul.

Synopsis:

A boy provides a look at life on the prairies of North America and describes the effects of the climate on the people in the heartland of the continent.

I first saw this book browsing through Costco and was captivated by the simplicity of the writing and the beauty of the pictures. It is so true of what makes the prairies such a wonderful place to be. People not raised on the prairies get a glimpse of the wonderous area it truly is. I was also brought to tears to see that my home town of Balgonie was in the book and I could see the home of one of my best friends.
