The middle of the world by Kathleen Norris( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle of the World reflects Norris's strong gifts as a storyteller and poet of place. The locales are New York City, where she formerly lived, and South Dakota west of the Missouri River, where she is business manager of a family farm that raises wheat, sunflowers, and Hereford cattle. "The poems are about these places," she writes, "and the more or less imagined lives in them: and also about family and inheritance; it was inheritance that moved me to South Dakota. Some of the poems are about faith: my own ideas as well as the traditional religious faith that is a thread running through my family history, both enhancing lives and running them."
