    1. There are books by scientists and nature writers that inspire an attitude of awe and wonder, and they do it with a graceful style of coolly elegant prose. This is not one of those books. Janovy, a University of Nebraska biologist specializing in parasitology, is often awestruck by nature, but his style is wonky and comically ironic, using the kind of classroom lecture technique meant to engage undergraduates by seeming to be anything but reverential about subjects he loves, enjoys, and deeply ca [...]


    2. I love nature. I enjoy science. I love learning new things. I'm an absolute fan-girl of all things Keith County/Paxton/Sandhills/North Platte River. This is the part of the world that most fills my soul. With that said *yawn*. Also*eyeroll*. I was a bit perplexed in the beginning of chapter one, until I figured out what the author was doing. I was pulled in completely by chapters two and three. "This could be interesting!" "Yay! I'm really going to enjoy this!"Then, I began fighting the urge to [...]


    3. This was an odd book. I couldn't really get into it at first, couldn't find the thread of the book as it were.And then it all came together in the last chapters, and I understood. I've suffered from the Ogallala Blues: that yearning to be outdoors and gone when you're chained to a desk, tidying up the paperwork, writing your report, earning your daily crust in some office building somewhere -- an office building with no windows, or if there are windows, they look out over the industrial section [...]


    4. Very nice natural history, mostly on the microscopic level, but up to and including humans and their structures, of southwestern Nebraska. An area noted for the sand hills, a vast area of tall grass prairie and clear cold springs and creeks, all flowing southeast to the north and south Platte rivers. The water comes from the Ogallala aquifer which is normally 100’s of feet below the surface, but in this northern terminus of the aquifer erosion has tapped the pool and some springs bubble up in [...]


    5. I absolutely loved Janovy's style - completely poetic and filled with insights and connections, with just enough mystery that I stayed entranced.


    6. I picked up “Keith County Journal” by John Janovy, Jr. after I heard about the Nebraska 150 Challenge, an initiative that is supposed to encourage readers to learn more about Nebraska and/or read books by Nebraskan authors. It reminded me a little bit of “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson, more in the story telling form rather than dry textbook style, though it was neither as elaborate, nor as lengthy. John Janovy, Jr. is a biologist with a sense of humor who seems to [...]


    7. Thought this a different, intriguing way of thinking like a naturalist. Author's academic background was in parasitology, which also gives it an interesting spin.
