Praise

“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 

“My absolute favorite [of Wallace Stegner’s books] and a candidate for one of my top books of all time.” —A. O. Scott, The New York Times Book Review (podcast)

“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
