New book Praire Sky added to book collection

The book, Prairie Sky: A Pilot’s Reflections on Flying and the Grace of Altitude, by W. Scott Olsen, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  This book is a collection of essays about seeing the world from a pilot’s perspective. Much of the book features the Red River Valley.  The following quote was taken from the back cover:

“Whether searching for the still-evident shores of ancient lakes, the dustbowl-era shelterbelt supposed to run the length of the country, or the even more elusive understandings of physics and theology, Olsen shares the unique perspective and insight allowed to pilots.”
