New: Wind Farm: Landscape with Stories and Towers (Dos Madres, 2021)
Praise for Wind Farm:
These elegant essays are bound together, like pearls on a necklace, by two narrative threads—one about the author’s upbringing in a Mennonite farming family on the Illinois prairie, and the other about the prairie itself. . . . Jeff Gundy . . .left the farm for the classroom, first as a college student and then as a teacher, but he carried along from his rural upbringing riches of imagination that are abundantly displayed in these pages.
—Scott Russell Sanders
Lyric memoir, prose-poem meditation on rural agricultural communities, fable of Anthropocene changes to the American Midwest—Jeff Gundy’s splendid Wind Farm or Landscape with Towers and Stories is all of these. . . .For a son and heir of the vanishing family farm, what does it mean to inherit the wind? —Elizabeth Dodd
