Love Song to the Plains is a lyric salute to the earth and sky and people who made the history of the Great Plains by the region's incomparable historian, Mari Sandoz. It is a story of men and women of many hues--courageous, violent, in-domitable, foolish--their legends, failures, and achievements: of explorers and fur trappers and missionaries; of soldiers and army posts and Indian fighting; of California-bound emigrants who stopped off to become settlers; of cattlemen and bad men, boomers and land speculators, and their feuds and rivalries. Above all, this is a portrait of the true Plainsman, the man or woman who can stand to have the horizon far off and every day, every year, a gamble. "A collection of tall tales told and tall tales true strung like beads upon the durable cord of an abiding love of the country to which these tales belong. These are not all fact, neither are they all fiction. They are the quintessential essence of the legends, lore and lifeways of the land."--W. M. Hutchinson, San Francisco Chronicle
