BoW: Ogallala Road by Bair

Posted on September 9, 2015 at 7:00 AM by Lianne Flax

The Book of the Week is posted every Wednesday. 

 ogallala     Ogallala Road: a Memoir of Love and Reckoning
    by Julene Bair

    Formats: audiobook & ebook
    Find it on:  OneClickdigital & 3M Cloud Library

A 2015 Kansas Notable Book.  

Like many farmers, Julene wants to hold on to her family land and maintain this way of life for her son and future generations. But that means irrigating the fields from the Ogallala Aquifer, and being a part of depleting this vital water source of the Great Plains.

Reminder: the Kansas Book Festival is this Saturday, September 12! Bair is unable to make it, but all the other 2015 authors of Notable Books will be there.
