HEARTLAND by Priscilla Spitler - SOLD!

A prophetic 1983 dream and a 2006 road trip to Midwestern America to find a family burial ground amidst rows of cornfields inspired this personal narrative. Exploring her own family as Swiss German immigrant farmers of the 18th century, from a birds eye view the author takes a poetic look at overall human migration, particularly the Europeans to the New World; its impact and change to natural lands, on the environment and ultimately climate. A unique book, the text, illustration, and binding were all created by the artist.
