Summary
Covering parts of four states-- Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota-- that share a shoreline with the Mississippi River, the Driftless area was spared the glacial activity that leveled the rest of the Midwest landscape. What is left is a common culture of tucked away hills and valleys, where small-scale farming, a respect and love of nature, and close-knit community are a way of life. Lyons tells the stories of the Driftless through the colorful and unforgettable voices of residents. Readers will meet seed savers, off-the-gridders, birders, farmers, musicians, artists, and writers, all who share a common bond in a separate nation called the Driftless
