About the Author

Hamlin Garland was born and raised on pioneer farms in the upper Midwest, and his earliest and best fiction (most of it collected in Main Travelled Roads, 1891) deals with the unremitting hardship of frontier life---angry, realistic stories about the toil and abuses to which farmers of the time mostrar mais were subjected. As his fiction became more popular and romantic, its quality seriously declined, and Garland is remembered today chiefly for a handful of stories, such as "Under the Lion's Paw" and "Rose of Dutcher's Coolly." His only contribution to literary theory is Crumbling Idols (1894), in which he argued for an art that was truthful, humanitarian, and rooted in a specific locale. The first volume of his autobiography, A Son of the Middle Border (1917), was followed by the much-admired second volume, A Daughter of the Middle Border (1921), which was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. He published several other volumes of reminiscence, all of which are once more available with the reprinting of the 45-volume collection of his works. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Good stories about the midwest area and farming people. Had to read it for English in 10th grade, I think, but worthwhile anyway!

Was an alright read. Mostly about missed opportunities with some adventure, river raft chapter being the best.

An adult son remembers his mother and his childhood and adolescence. The book shows the westward expansion of the United States as the family moves from Wisconsin across Iowa and into South Dakota over the years. The somewhat archaic language lends beauty to this description of a woman who worked hard and loved her family.

Hamlin Garland opens up life in both Wisconsin and the mountains out West the late 1800s, then proceeds to illuminate Chicago and New York City in the early 1900s.
An early believer in equal marriage and feminism, his writings were unique though they took a long time to be valued. Though proud and with a slow growing reputation,
he remained honest about himself, his disappointments, his restless feelings and depressions. This book is the sequel to SON OF THE MIDDLE BORDER. Both are
invaluable for understanding the early settlers of Middle Wisconsin.… (mais)
