Synopsis

John price’s story is one of family and place, rich with wild creatures, with his Swedish ancestors, with neighbors, and with his prairie home. His work, deeply grounded in the grasslands of the Midwest, is, like that of Edward Abbey or Aldo Leopold, tied to place yet elevated by experiences that know no boundaries.
