“More than corn grows tall on the American Plains. Here for the delectation of amateur folklorists is a collection of country whoppers from the frontier of Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa-funny and fantastic yarns and anecdotes of pioneer vintage that belie the erroneous notion that the men and women who settled the Plains were ‘grimly serious’ forerunners of Grant Wood’s farming couple.”-Publishers Weekly Roger Welsch is a well-known folklorist and essayist. He is the author of nearly thirty books, including It’s Not the End of the Earth, but You Can See It from Here and the coauthor of Cather’s Kitchens: Foodways in Literature and Life, both available in Bison Books editions.
