"In the end, what makes life meaningful for Kooser are the ways in which his neighbors care for one another and how an afternoon walking with an old dog, or baking a pie, or decorating the house for Christmas can summon memories of his Iowa childhood. This writer is a seer in the truest sense of the word, discovering the extraordinary within the ordinary, the deep beneath the shallow, the abiding wisdom in the pithy Bohemian proverbs that are woven into his essays. And when casting his eye on social progress, Kooser reminds us that the closing of local schools, thoughtless county weed control, and irresponsible housing development destroy more than just the view. At stake are communities, as well as families, our health, and arguably our very souls."--BOOK JACKET.

"Ben. Franklin, Sol. Smith and Horace Greeley have written of themselves and their times. So have Argo, Lamartine, and many others. Abler men than I, no doubt; but because Jupiter is a great planet, do we say the little star shall not twinkle? And why, then, may not I write modestly of myself and times? As it would make the book too big for any writer to tell all the truth about himself, I need not tell distasteful things. It is therefore a safe business to write a memoir, as anything one would rather not tell can be left out; and if I think of any dubious things in my own life, I can pass them over. Great slices of the actual life of any man must be thrown aside, whether he or another tells the tale; but if the reader hankers after the untold, thinking it might be savory with peccadillos or the like, let him imagine the void filled with his own shortcomings, and he need not care to feast on those of men no better than himself."--Page [1].
