Jumps forward a few times. Some favored influence when Pulitzer was awarded. Even Ferber had her doubts about the novel when turned over to publisher. Great book? Well it made it over to Europe & Russia with high regards. Made it to the big screen 3 separate times, none successful. The vision of a working farm, the use of a single horse wagon to arrive to market by dawn, social structure of an early Chicago & it's suburbs, the true meaning of what we should get out of our lives is well depicted & appreciated.
I enjoyed this book. I liked the descriptions of the period. I can see why it won a Pulitzer.
One hundred percent fantastic. I love this book and I would read it over and over. Such a unique writing style and such real characters. Truly a classic that *deserves* to be a classic!
