With his unique blend of intrepidity, tongue-in-cheek humor, and wide-eyed wonder, Ian Frazier takes us on a journey of more than 25,000 miles up and down and across the vast and myth-inspiring Great Plains. A travelogue, a work of scholarship, and a western adventure, Great Plains takes us from the site of Sitting Bull’s cabin, to an abandoned house once terrorized by Bonnie and Clyde, to the scene of the murders chronicled in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. It is an expedition that reveals the heart of the American West. Less

“I fear for the Great Plains because many think they are boring.”
I’ll probably like this book more than you. I salivated over the possibilities of Great Plains after reading the author’s Travels in Siberia. I went in with high hopes but acknowledge now that twenty-o. Read full review

This was delightful. I am from the Plains. Forget my irritation over learning so much about them from someone born east of Chicago, living in New Jersey, and working in New York City. He well-earned his spurs by shedding the East Coast bias, criss-crossing the Plains by c. Read full review

Page 214: “Now, when I have trouble getting to sleep, I sometimes imagine that my bed is on the back of a flatbed pickup truck driving across the Great Plains. I ignore the shouts on the sidewalk and the bass vibnrations from the reggae club across the street. The back of. Read full review

Great Plains is a cross between Kathleen Norris’ “Dakota” and William Least Heat Moon’s “Blue Highways.” It’s a road book about the high plains — that semi-arid, often treeless region covering 10 states lying between the Rockies and the Mid-West. Rather than a day-by-day. Read full review

I should probably add a ‘shelf’ to my profile on here called ‘Great Plains.’ There’s been quite a bit of Stegner going on over here, and now this. I think it feeds some sort of nostalgia. for a place I’ve never actually lived. I’m a city boy and can’t claim the tiniest b. Read full review

This was a breezy, sweeping crash course on America’s Great Plains and much of the West; equal parts travelogue and history with a vividly conveyed sense of place, spiced with historical tidbits and humorously imparted facts of the weird. It’s kind of like a bunch of dige. Read full review

I found this in the history section of a great used bookstore in Chicago, Myopic Books, and I thought it was very fortuitous because I remember wanting to read more Frazier after “Travels in Siberia,” and also a book about the plains seems like an appropriate buy on a Chi. Read full review

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read this book, but I just read it in preparation for a trip to the Great Plains. And it’s still one of my favorite books. Frazier’s not a stylist or a cloying writer who uses irony to skewer everything; he’s just a good writer with. Read full review

Recommended to Elizabeth by: I saw Melissa P. mentioned it, and I usually like Ian Frazier.
I picked this up at the library after Melissa had mentioned it. I like the other things I’ve read by Ian Frazier, in large part because I’m generally a sucker for ruminations on American identity issues.
This one is focused on the Great Plains, obviously. Weirdly, I didn’t. Read full review
