Acerca de

Sinopsis:

"Another fine, reflective, anecdotal look at rural Texas." —New Yorker

"Graves writes eloquently about a countryman's concerns. There's not a false note in the book." —Boston Globe

"Like the unmortared stone fences of Graves's native hill country, From a Limestone Ledge is constructed of bits and pieces never designed to fit together, yet made to achieve a unity that is more enduring than the sum of its individual parts by the hands of a master craftsman." —Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"The beauty of his work endures, and there is a greater pride in Texans' hearts for their home, I think, than there would be if he hadn't written the books he did." —Rick Bass, Garden & Gun

"In describing the particulars of his surroundings, Graves often was describing the world in microcosm and the place and plight of humankind in it." —Bryan Woolley, Dallas Morning News

About the Author:

A meticulous observer of the natural world and an equally precise crafter of the written word, John Graves is renowned for his Brazos Trilogy―Goodbye to a River, Hard Scrabble, and From a Limestone Ledge. He is widely acknowledged as Texas’s most beloved writer.
