The Center of the American West is proud to present Josh Garrett-Davis, author of Ghost Dances: Proving up on the Great Plains, for a reading and book signing.

There are places in America that have long held our collective imagination for their timeless beauty and mystery. The gifted young writer Josh Garrett-Davis takes a singular journey back to his native Midwestern American Plains and gives us a striking portrait of a unique American place. Politics and prairie, art and religion, all combine into a new picture of the region—one that is quite different from the long-standing images of the area as either a wasteland or a heroic frontier.
