April Center will review Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere by Poe Ballantine. For well over twenty years, Ballantine traveled America, taking odd jobs and wondering the big whys. At age forty-six he settled with his Mexican wife in Chadron, Nebraska, where they had an autistic son. He wrote about his experiences as a wanderer and his observations of America and its people, but one day in 2006 his neighbor, a math professor, disappeared. Ninety-five days later, the professor was found burned to death and tied to a tree in the hills behind the campus where he taught. No one, including law enforcement, understood the circumstances. Since Ballantine knew all the players: the suspects, the sheriff, the police involved, he and his kindergarten son set out to find out what might have happened. Love and Terror is not only a six-year examination of the case, but of Ballantine's eccentric High Plains town, his rocky marriage, and his purportedly autistic son. Westchester Public Library will also host this review Thursday, August 21 at 2:00p m at the Westchester Township Historical Museum.
