Grass Roots: The Universe of Home

Grass Roots

The Universe of Home
Winner of the Minnesota Book Award

From an author who “makes empty places full and a reader’s imagination soar” (Washington Post) comes a book that masterfully reveals the heart of rural America.

In these eloquent essays, Paul Gruchow meditates on living with the land and reinvigorating the values of community. Combining personal reflection and memoir with a powerful look at the state of our rural towns and people, Gruchow postulates a society in which our lives are more than commodities and our land is more than an extension of our industries.
