Loving photographs of the farm on the High Plains of the Texas Panhandle where Paula Chamlee grew up. Her parents (in their late eighties at the time of the book's publication) still farm their 1, 100 acres by themselves. "Paula Chamlee knows her landscapes. But, oh, these are different photographs, for these are landscapes of the human heart. They sweep from the inner soul to the infinite horizon, delineating the terrain of our memories, the range of our passions, and the expanse of our mortality. Her series remain simultaneously epic in its vision and intimate in its humanity" (Roy Flukinger). An absolute "must-have" title for Paula Chamlee collectors.
