About the Author

Iowa native John Madson (1923-1995) is considered the father of the modern prairie restoration movement; his books include Where the Sky Began (IOWA reprint, 2004), Stories from under the Sky (IOWA reprint, 2007), Up on the River, and Tallgrass Prairie. He wrote extensively on natural history and resource conservation for Audubon, Smithsonian, and National Geographic, among many others. Editor Michael McIntosh, one of the nation's foremost experts on shotguns, has written a short introduction to this first paperback edition of these ageless wilderness tales.

Reviews

Praise for John Madson
"Reading Madson is like reading some of his more illustrious and heady predecessors in the American experience . . . namely Emerson and Thoreau." --"Kansas City Star"

"My feeling for tallgrass prairie is like that of a modern man who has fallen in love with the face in a faded tintype. Only the frame is still real; the rest is illusion and dream. So it is with the original prairie. The beautiful face of it had faded before I was born, before I had a chance to touch and feel it, and all that I have known of the prairie is the setting and the mood--a broad sky of pure and intense light, with a sort of loftiness to the days, and the young prairie-born winds running past me from open horizons."--John Madson
