Native Soulmate

Author Zachary Michael Jack is tells about his real-life sequel to his fictional search for love in What Cheer: A Love Story. Native Soulmate reveals where and what his search for local love taught him about the Midwest.

Love Fresh. Love Local. What happened during the author’s search for a bride this past year (What Cheer: A Love Story)? At the height of summer, seventh generation Iowan Zachary Michael Jack embarks on an unforgettable journey to test what he calls the Beach Boys hypothesis: “What if we really do live in a world where native boy meets native girl…What if the cutest boys and girls in the world really are those right under our nose?” So begins a Cinderella season in search of a love homegrown in the Heartland. Jack delivers speeches in far flung farm burgs and readings in well-to-do college towns while setting up listening posts in public libraries and Chautauqua in 4-H cattle barns. One part travelogue and two parts love story, Native Soulmate offers not just an account of a magical quest and its unlikely settings, but a moving argument for why voting with your feet and leading with your heart really do matter. Much more than a look into marriage, brain drain, or dating. An honest, caring, and heart-felt look at our Midwestern world of agri-culture, community, family, and love.
