Synopsis

"Another fine, reflective, anecdotal look at rural Texas." -New Yorker

"Graves writes eloquently about a countryman's concerns. There's not a false note in the book." -Boston Globe

"Like the unmortared stone fences of Graves's native hill country, From a Limestone Ledge is constructed of bits and pieces never designed to fit together, yet made to achieve a unity that is more enduring than the sum of its individual parts by the hands of a master craftsman." -Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"The beauty of his work endures, and there is a greater pride in Texans' hearts for their home, I think, than there would be if he hadn't written the books he did." -Rick Bass, Garden & Gun

"In describing the particulars of his surroundings, Graves often was describing the world in microcosm and the place and plight of humankind in it." -Bryan Woolley, Dallas Morning News
