On August 10th, from 10am-12pm, Jon Lauck will be at the store signing and speaking about his newest book. The Interior Borderlands contains a number of smoothly written essays about the Midwest. It is a very unique book and worth reading.
Where does the Midwest end and the Great Plains begin? And does it matter?
The authors of essays in this latest collection from the Center of Western Studies believe such questions are important to understanding how regional identity forms and persists–or erodes and even disappears.
