Praised by Alice Walker and many other best-selling writers, The Personal History of Rachel DuPree is an award-winning debut novel with incredible heart about life on the prairie as it's rarely been seen. Reminiscent of The Color Purple as well as the frontier novels of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Willa Cather, it opens a window on the little-known history of African American homesteaders and gives voice to an extraordinary heroine who embodies the spirit that built America.

I love this book.
My only issues with this book is the narrator and the cover photo. The narrator herself was great but her voice I don't think was the best. I had a hard time not picturing the children as little caucasian children. That voice with the cover photo I wanted to make the main character bi-racial. Inside it clearing states over and over that the main character is dark skinned. Its a part of the story. Strange choice in narrator. Still the story was so great I couldn't stop listening and came to the end to quickly!

- Lady Lotus "I love well written books and moving narrators! I am a realism SCI-FI buff. I find non-mushy romance intertwined in a story appealing."
