Journey into the realm of the tallgrass prairie—where birds, plants, and seeds mix with water, roots, wind, and sky to reveal stories and facts about how each of us can learn to best live wherever we might call home.
Designed as a conversation, using short writings and photographs, Cindy Crosby and Thomas Dean enter a give and take to inspire in readers new understandings of the Midwestern tallgrass prairie through. Tallgrass Conversations encourages looking and listening to the prairie through the heart and mind as well as eyes, ears, and other senses, advancing both conservation and creative efforts on behalf of the tallgrass prairie.
