Keith County Journal
U of Nebraska Press, 1 févr. 1996 - 210 pages
To learn from nature, not about nature, was the imperative that took John Janovy Jr. and his students into the sandhills, marshes, grasslands, canyons, lakes, and streams of Keith County in western Nebraska. The biologist explores the web of interrelationships among land, animals, and human beings. Even termites, snails, and barn swallows earn respect and assume significance in the overall scheme of things. Janovy, reminiscent of Henry David Thoreau in his acute powers of observation and search for wisdom, has written a new foreword for this Bison Books edition.John Janovy Jr. is Varner Professor at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and director of the Cedar Point Biological Station. He is the author of Back in Keith County and On Becoming a Biologist, also available as Bison Books.

This was an odd book. I couldn't really get into it at first, couldn't find the thread of the book as it were. And then it all came together in the last chapters, and I understood. I've suffered from the Ogallala Blues: that yearning to be outdoors and gone when you're chained to a desk, tidying up the paperwork, writing your report, earning your daily crust in some office building somewhere -- an office building with no windows, or if there are windows, they look out over the industrial section of town. Other than that, I can't find the words to describe how mystic this book is, and yet how intimately connected to each of us, and to the planet. You'll just have to read it yourself to find out.
