Review Text

Suggests RED DUST (Atlantic Monthly Press book of several years ago), but lacks the vigorous strength of that excellent pioneer story. This is a simpler tale, with the setting the open plains of the Dakotas, and there is a grasshopper plague paralleling the "red rust" of the earlier novel. There is, however, a certain charm in the very simplicity of this new book, a sense of authenticity, as though the author had drawn on family records for her sources. A book that the conservative older reader will appreciate. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
