This account is the true coming-of-age odyssey of a farm boy who -- informed by the full brute force of a homesteader's life on the vast unbroken prairie -- would become a pre-eminent American writer of the early 20th century. Pulitzer Prize winner Hamlin Garland recounts in this captivating autobiography his journey from a rural childhood to the study of literature and the sciences in Boston, his vital connections with such inspirations as William Howells and eventually his reclaimed sense of identity as a writer of the Midwest's beautiful yet hard land.
