    The underappreciated splendor of Konza Prairie familiar to many Riley county residents provides artistic inspiration for Edward Sturr's new book of photographs, Fire and Form on the Konza Prairie. Edward Sturr, an emertius professor of art at Kansas State University, is a prominent landscape photographer who first began exploring Konza Prairie through his camera lenses in 1990. He has photographed the prairie in every season, but the photos of fire are the most provocative. The powerful beauty, shear force, and danger of fires are skillfully captured by Sturr in this book. John Briggs, director of the Konza Prairie Biological Station, provides insightful informaion in his articles about the importance of fire for the long term health of the prairie ecosystem.
