The Driftless Reader - Book


The Driftless Reader is a compilation of writings that highlight the history, landscape and literature of the Driftless Area, the region that encompasses southwestern Wisconsin and adjacent Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. Ancient glaciers passed by the Driftless Area and waterways vein its interior, forming an enchanting, enigmatic landscape of sharp ridgetops and deep valleys. Across time, this rugged topography has been home to an astonishing variety of people: Sauk, Dakota, and Ho-Chunk villagers, Norwegian farmers and Mexican mercado owners, Dominican nuns and Buddhist monks, river raftsmen and Shakespearean actors, Cornish miners and African American barn builders, organic entrepreneurs and Hmong truck gardeners. More than eighty texts selected by editors Curt Meine and Keefe Keeley include writings by Mark Twain, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Leopold, David Rhodes, Black Hawk and many other Native people, explorers, scientists, historians, farmers, songwritiers, journalists and poets. Paintings, photographs, maps, and other images complement the texts, providing a deeper appreciation of this region's layered natural and human history.
