Tom Bie, publisher and editor of The Drake magazine, adds this insightful profile of author John Gierach to MidCurrent‘s “Books” section. “Gierach and I are sitting in the back room of the South Creek, Ltd. rod shop in the tiny town of Lyons, Colorado?a setting so seemingly Gierach-like that it’s hard to imagine him ever being part of any other world, much less Manhattan. Cigarette smoke fills the room as he describes how he migrated from Glenwood, Illinois, to Colorado back in the late ’60s.”
