O Pioneers!

Jessica's Review:

The book that set me off into my wild dreams of a very naive, romantic view of the life of ordinary families crossing oceans and miles of open prairies to start a better life than those they bravely left.
Alexandra and her brothers are one of many families stoically travelling hundreds of miles to run a stake through their homesteads. The entirety of human behaviour comes out in this novel, love, jealousy, greed, long stretches of boredom and painful loss.
Following Alexandra through the horrific poverty of the long droughts and the even more inhumane dustbowl years, this tale drenched in historical truth, will never leave you!
