About the Book
Look, listen and breathe in the tallgrass prairie and prairie pothole hole region on and around the author/artist/photographer's home.
Witness the skies as far as the eye can see, birds of the tallgrass and wetlands, the wonder filled landscape and prairie plants of this nationally threatened habitat.
See it through the brush and lens of author/artist/photographer Bruce A. Morrison.
Studying at the University of Iowa's School of Art, Morrison majored in Photography and minored in two other mediums: Painting and Serigraphy. The Photographic landscape is treated in large, medium and digital formats; in paintings or drawings, Morrison prefers a plein air approach and these works are smaller in scale. While his work in serigraphy plays upon a more graphic approach of shape, color and tone. Bruce has a deep personal interest in the natural heritage of our remaining Tallgrass Prairie, and much of his work over the past decade has been deeply influenced by this subject. He has spent the past 10 years devoting time, energy, and his work in furthering and encouraging prairie reconstruction/restoration projects and education in NW Iowa. Bruce and his wife Georgeann live on a prairie remnant in rural NW Iowa in the Tallgrass Prairie Pothole region.
