The Plains have brought forth many famous authors. But the writers you’ve never heard of are worth reading too Fine writers have been—and still are—lost for reasons that have nothing to do with the quality of their work. This interactive multimedia ebook explains why eight authors (LaSelle Gilman, Margaret Haughawout, Dorothy Thomas, Bertram Austin Lewis, W. Zolley Lerner, Faye Cashatt Lewis, Earl Guy, Ervin Krause) who published in the literary journal Prairie Schooner (Lincoln, Nebraska) were “lost." Contemporary authors Ted Kooser, Kwame Dawes and Timothy Schaffert comment on why they should be remembered.
This is a beautifully crafted set of literary portraits of several exceptionally talented, yet sadly forgotten writers. The research that went into crafting these biographies is extraordinary. Their stories are vividly brought to life through pictures, videos, maps, archival material, and, of course, exemplary writing. Download it, and enjoy learning about these fascinating people!
A gift for anyone especially a bibliophile.
