"A book of verses, underneath the bough, A jug of wine, a loaf of bread -- and thou Beside me singing in the wilderness -- Ah, wilderness were paradise enow!"

Book Spine Poetry: Prairie Heart
Prairie earth, blue sky dream -- the prairie traveler in the new world, a natural state, where the buffalo roam, rising from the plains, the Great Plains. The diversity of life: the birds, grasses, trees and shrubs, the land that feeds us. Bring back the buffalo! In wildness is the preservation of the world.
