"A son of the middle border" is an epic story of the quest for new frontiers during the last half of the nineteenth century and of the gradual, heartbreaking failure of America's pioneer ideal. Drawing on the history of his own family, Pulitzer Prize winner Hamlin Garland chronicles the experiences of a generation. "A son of the middle border", Garland's bittersweet narrative of growing up on a Wisconsin farm, captures in vivid, moving detail the stories of the thousands of courageous and optimistic Americans who sought new and prosperous lives on the mid-western frontier and discovered not only the grandeur of the plains but the immense toll nature demands from those who try to tame the land.
