PRAISE

“Delightfully intimate yet soaringly ambitious, Christopher Cartmill’s lovely and lovingly told memoir of his journey through personal and national history is a fascinating meditation on the infinite meanings of home. This is a terrific nonfiction debut from a terrifically gifted writer.”—Adam Langer, author ofEllington Boulevard and My Father’s Bonus March

“It is not as a disinterested witness that Christopher Cartmill embarked on this extraordinary exploration, but as a passionate participant, often literally risking body and soul, with a clear eye, a probing intellect, and a compassionate and fearless heart. The result is a fascinating, and very moving, chronicle of his journey.”—Eva Rubinstein, actress and internationally acclaimed photographer

“The Nebraska Dispatches sensitively chronicles a time when paths crossed—when the past intertwined with the present and remade a future.”—Renee Sans Souci, Umonhon (Omaha) poet

“Cartmill writes with such power and beauty. The Nebraska Dispatchesresonated with me personally. Even though our experiences are of course different in the discovery journey that led to our respective projects . . . there are many deep and striking resonances.”—Jocelyn McKinnon, lecturer at The University of Newcastle, Australia, and creator of the performance piece,Listening: Indigenous Stories from the Central Coast

Praise for Christopher Cartmill’s play Home Land, on which this book is based:
“This is a mature, sophisticated play. Like rainwater in the Nebraska Sandhills, the play’s haunting truths seep into the cracks where life begins and ends. And it is here where those hard truths are delivered with whispers—not megaphones—which of course make them resonate even louder.”—Joe Starita, author of I Am a Man
