Publisher's Summary

On the harsh and wild frontier of the American West, Alexandra Bergson struggles to fulfill her father's dying wish of establishing his family on the Nebraska table lands. Through hard times and abundant, through love and loss, through joy and suffering, Alexandra challenges both her family and the land in her quiet, honest way. Cather's realistic depiction of life on the prairie is anchored by a smart, strong, independent heroine and heart-achingly beautiful prose which evokes both the melancholy and the awe-inspiring beauty of middle America at the turn of the century.

Fantastic

Any additional comments?

One of the best books I've ever read, and marvelously narrated. Incredible depth in the characters and a great overall storyline. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Pleasing to listen to and inspiring!

This book has it all as far as I am concerned. There is a strong female character with a bit of history mixed in, a lesson to be learned and wonderful narration. I can't believe that it was only $3.95. This was a great deal for a very good book.
