Celestial Dust: Essays and Poetry from a Prairie Life
From the back cover:
You may find the title of this book: Celestial Dust: Essays and Poetry from a Prairie Life, just a bit curious until you consider that our world and thus, the prairie are derived from the stuff of space. Simple elements came together in the budding Universe to make more complex elements, including celestial dust, which eventually merged with ice crystals to form the earth, you and me. It should therefore not be surprising that we might behave a little like celestial dust, ice crystals or something as vast and timeless as the prairie.
So you see, the prairie is really a wise-old ancestor, trying to teach us a thing or two about life, if we would just take the time to stop, sit down and listen to what it has to say.
