Man Killed by Pheasant and Other Kinships by John T. Price is now available in paperback from the Bur Oak Books series of the University of Iowa Press.
Man Killed by Pheasant is an ode to the prairie, to west-central Iowa, and to family connections stretching from Price’s Swedish ancestors to his parents, wife, and children. Sharing stories of home, secrets of landscape, and binding ties to both, he weaves history and memory to create kinships for himself and his readers.
