From the publisher: "Don Kirby grew up turning the surface of the earth upside down, the son of a sharecropper in northwestern Missouri. A half century later, he has emerged as the preeminent photographer of wheat country, a master of both his medium and chosen subject matter. Kirby's sweeping, geometric photographs of wheatfields in the American Northwest manage to convey both a sense of wonder and a deep understanding of the land -- our dependence on it for our survival, and its own survival of the uses and abuses we impose upon it."
