Description

When most people think of the prairies, they picture endless flat plains, miles of farms with grain waving in the wind, gentle, undulating hills, and vast cattle ranches. But to the people who live there, particularly the children, the prairies are much more.

A Prairie Alphabet offers the adult and child alike a remarkable tour – from the grain elevators that are an integral part of the landscape, to oil rigs that pop up like “grasshoppers,” to fairs and rodeos, to auctions, barns, combines, and dugouts.

Editorial Review

“Superlative.…Moore’s intricate, realistic style – calling to mind a cross between Andrew Wyeth and Norman Rockwell – lets readers appreciate details usually found only in a photograph.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
