Selections by Poe Ballantine

Poe Ballantine lives in Chadron, Nebraska, and is the author of five books, most recently the true-crime memoir Love & Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere. His eleven-year-old son, Tom, reads books on his father’s iPad and deletes any that contain bad words, so Tom was happy to discover T.E. Lawrence’s clean-living opus Seven Pillars of Wisdom, which he faithfully refers to as “Seven Caterpillars of Wisdom.”
