Welsch opens with a passionately partisan and moving essay about the religious persecution of Native American peoples; the stories themselves, while well-intentioned and offering interesting detail, remain heavy-handed and unconvincing.

Roger Welsch (born November 6, 1936) was a senior correspondent on the CBS News Sunday Morning program, and was featured in a segment called "Postcards from Nebraska. An author, humorist and folklorist, Welsch was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and today lives outside of Dannebrog, Nebraska. Welsch was the 2005 winner of the Henry Fonda Award, from the State of Nebraska Travel and Tourism Division. Why I'm an Only Child and Other Slightly Naughty Plains Folktales. Nebraska Press, 2016.

Roger Welsch has written something that goes to the very heart of Native American religion, and done so in a way that is neither dismissive nor sappy. He is bang-up, dead-on, exactly right in his approach. I've used this book in some of the university classes I teach. Once the students understand that we're progressing backward through time, they have no problems. It's especially helpful in providing a background for discussing the whole repatriation of objects issue.

Roger Welsch, A small town on a braided prairie river. He will speak about his latest book, SEA OF GRASS, a unique and fascinating history of the influential EchoHawk Family.

Antuiserum
If you're under fifty you don't remember Roger and "Postcards from Nebraska", little five minute gems broadcast on Charles Kuralt's "CBS Sunday Morning". You missed some classics. Don't miss this fine story-teller by passing up this read. Although this book has been classed as a "fiction" piece, I will personally assure you, and yes, I've talked to Roger about this as well, none of these stories are fiction....you'll just have to suspend your credulity about that. Call them "magical reality" or even whimsey if you like, but read, enjoy, and ponder all the possibilities, Roger knows what he's talking about and he does it with straight forward, no-frills-midwestern honesty. Don't know what that is? It's writing without the pretense of "style". This is a read you will treasure and perhaps pass on to someone you love and with whom you would like to share some magic.

I reviewed this book for a magazine when it first appeared. I gave it an all thumbs and fingers up review. I've reread it several times since then and it only gets better.
