Seasons Of The Tallgrass Prairie
Paul A Johnsgard
01 December 2014
U Of Nebraska Press
A respected author and scholar, Paul A. Johnsgard has spent a lifetime observing the natural delights of NebraskaÕs woodlands, grasslands, and wetlands. Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie collects his musings on NebraskaÕs natural history and the issues of conservation facing our future.
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 stateÕs finite natural resources, Seasons of the Tallgrass Prairie celebrates the gifts of a half century spent roaming NebraskaÕs back roads, trails, and sometimes-forgotten places.
