Jim Cossaart

Jim Cossaart was a windmill repairman, a blacksmith's apprentice, a tractor salesman, a rancher, and a farmer, who eventually became a dentist. Jim's prairie home has been in his family for six generations. Surviving dust storms, tornadoes, the farm crisis of the 1980s, and near bankruptcy, his farm still stands as a symbol of the tenacity of the tallgrass prairie itself. These beautifully composed stories of the Great Plains, filled with suspense, redemption, love, and barely believable characters, provide the backdrop for the author's personal struggles to preserve both the land and his relationship to it.
