Lost Writers of the Plains

The Plains have brought forth many famous authors.  But the writers you’ve never heard of are worth reading too  Fine writers have been—and still are—lost for reasons that have nothing to do with the quality of their work.  This interactive multimedia ebook explains why eight authors (LaSelle Gilman, Margaret Haughawout, Dorothy Thomas, Bertram Austin Lewis, W. Zolley Lerner, Faye Cashatt Lewis, Earl Guy, Ervin Krause) who published in the literary journal Prairie Schooner (Lincoln, Nebraska) were “lost." Contemporary authors Ted Kooser, Kwame Dawes and Timothy Schaffert comment on why they should be remembered.
