“Girl on a Float is a collection of stories with a shared setting and recurring conflicts, most of which involve civilization and nature in some kind of revealing interaction. Brian Bedard reveals the South Dakota experience as it takes shape in a variety of dramatic situations. That experience invariably involves the challenges of living in a wild space the Northern Plains which tests peoples physical strength and their practical wits within a raw and unpredictable climate. In this environment, you simply cannot ignore the natural world as a reminder and a teacher. The wind, for example, won t let you.” - Amazon
