This Place, These People
In their book, This Place, These People: Life and Shadow on the Great Plains, David Stark, Arthur Lehman Professor of Sociology and International Affairs, and photographer Nancy Warner pair images of abandoned farms with the plain-spoken recollections of the people who still live in nearby communities.
