Praise

“[A] vivid . . . quest for roots. Johnson strikes an elegiac note in her cullings of family and national history . . . splendid.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Smart and engaging . . . [A] singularly agreeable and appealing book.”
The Washington Post
 
“Smart . . . perceptive . . . Flyover Lives is a memoir of the Midwest sure to charm readers.”
—Maureen Corrigan, NPR

“Delightful . . . compelling and entertaining. . . . [Johnson’s] storytelling brings [the] past vividly to life.”
Chicago Tribune
 
“Lovely writing . . . [It’s an] absolute pleasure [to be] in the company of a skilled writer who so eloquently examines the people and geography that shaped her.”
—Boston Globe

“Johnson seeks to understand how [her family] history has shaped her character, and . . . her cheerful pragmatism and unsparing work ethic do seem tied to the can-do spirit of her ancestors.”
The New Yorker

“Charming.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“Adeptly structured, incisive, funny, and charming . . . Keenly observed.”
