A correction road is a line along which the vast grid of prairie roads is reset, and the distortion caused by the curvature of the earth is corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it! This book caught my eye while strolling the bookstore. Had a local, small printing press look/feel to it and I wanted to take a closer look. Was captured almost immediately. I bought the book and love it. It's quirky, and sets such great atmosphere it feels you are right there in the conversation, in the room, etc. The odd mind-blowing thought or statement is thrown in too and it's quirkiness contributes to the amusement. Would especially recommend it for anyone who loves small town prairie life.
