Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seduced by the government's offer of 320 acres per homesteader, Americans and Europeans rushed to Montana and the Dakotas to fulfill their own American dream in the first decade of this century. Raban's stunning evocation of the harrowing, desperate reality behind the homesteader's dream strips away the myth — while preserving the romance — that has shrouded our understanding of our own heartland.
