About the book
With elements of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, the work of Terry Tempest Williams, and Jane Smiley’s A Thousand Acres, The Ogallala Road is a tough, tender memoir about love, family, and learning how to care for the places where we make our homes. Always a restless adventurer, with several failed relationships and not-quite-right cities in her rear view mirror, Bair has trouble readjusting when she comes home to Kansas, where she finds herself balancing life as a single mother with allegiances to her career and to the rest of her family. Enter a handsome rancher from Kansas’s beautiful Smoky Valley, and the problem seems to be solved. But events take a different turn as Bair learns the truth about the Ogallala Aquifer, her family’s use of the land they have held for generations, and the politics that divide the region amid the rapid and perilous changes to its treasured landscape.
The Ogallala Road was selected as a Readers’ Prize Pick in Elle and a Booklist Editors’ Choice title, was shortlisted for the Reading the West Book Award, and won the Colorado Author’s League Award.
