"This Place, These People"

In the tradition of Solomon D. Butcher, who photographed some of the first Midwestern settlers in the nineteenth century, and Wright Morris, who captured the lives of farmers’ in the twentieth century, This Place, These People provides a photographic and vernacular portrait of disappearing farm places of the Great Plains. The book pairs photographer Nancy Warner's stark black and white photographs with the plain-spoken recollections of the people who live near abandoned farm places. Visit the website at
