    DescriptionBo Mason, his wife, Elsa, and their two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair. Drifting from town to town and from state to state, the violent, ruthless Bo seeks out his fortune-in the hotel business, in new farmland, and, eventually, in illegal rum-running through the treacherous back roads of the American Northwest. In this affecting narrative, Wallace Stegner portrays over three decades in the life of the Mason family as they struggle to survive during the lean years of the early twentieth century.

    Review quote
    "An irreplaceable classic . . . One of the great books from which we may understand America and its rise . . . It has not aged, and it seems unlikely that, as long as memory and history preserve the bringing forth of modern life on this continent, it will ever lose relevance." -Robert Stone, from the Introduction "Stegner has felt the spell of mountain and prairie, of drought, flood, and blizzard. . . . A harrowing saga." -"The New York Times" "Stands out beautifully and unforgettably." -"The New Yorker"
