“East and West Coast residents fly over the Midwest and some of them look down on us. They call this flyover country and call us flyover people. They think there’s nothing worthwhile in the middle of the country, in Kansas. I write this column to prove otherwise.” Cheryl Unruh
This book is about the Kansas experience: wind, long horizons, clouds, storms. It’s about life in a small town, a childhood in a community of 400 people in the center of Kansas.
