The Kingston Plains are nine-and-a-half square miles of stump prairie -- a field of stumps from a previously logged forest -- in the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Through a mix of personal essay and research, this nonfiction work explores the author's fascination with the area by examining its soil, forest ecology, lumber history, fire ecology, and potential symbolism for a different way of processing the world around us.
