First Sentence
Americans inhabit a third of a continent, mostly in the South Temperate Zone, but depending on elevation or proximity to the sea, the climate provides large seasonable samples of arctic blasts or damp tropical miasma. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Openings 15 Sep 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Bill Holm again speaks softly, and humorously. As a sixteen year old whose first wish is to get out of rural Minnesota it is surprisingly nonthreatening. The only disappointing thing about this book is the omission of the author's poem, "Openings,"

5.0 out of 5 stars Through these pages, Holm's ancestors live again 3 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Bill Holm writes very movingly about his parents, ancestors, and the people of the town of Minneota. It made me all the more interested in my own family's history. He writes with humor, understanding and compassion. He doesn't dwell too long on sentimentality; indeed, he warns us against it. He strives to show the character and (dare I say it?) soul of some of the notable people he knew in his youth. He has provided us with a wonderful book of essays.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book about people in small places opened my heart. 15 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Bill Holm has a gift with words and brings to life people long dead who had a strong impact on his life. As he opens up his past life, the reader's is also opened. Perhaps it was growing up in a small midwestern town that caused this book to strike a deep chord in me. However,I think it is his ability to bring out the gifts he was given by members of the community that helps all of us see similiar gifts in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Holm's writing fills the heart 28 Dec 2013
By Christine Cendagorta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bill Holm captures the time, the place and the people of his Minnesota home and Icelandic ancestors beautifully and honestly. His writing is crisp but somehow musical. After reading his book The Windows of Brimness I couldn't wait to read more from him.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Holm's book 10 Aug 2013
By Wendy Prather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mr. Holm spoke at my college years ago, and I took an American literature class in which his published work was studied. He was an insightful, gifted author and storyteller. His work is well worth reading.
