KIRKUS REVIEW

A genuine enough picture of Iowa farm life, with a note of authenticity in the picture of the land and in the simplicity and ruggedness of the people. But as a novel it is long, lethargic, plodding, lacking the pace and vigor one demands in a regional novel of the lusty type. It is a family chronicle, tracing the span from the death of the father, leaving a widow with four young ones, to the maturity of the eldest son. The rhythm is marked by the seasonal round; the incidents supplied by the struggles of the children against the old order, the animosity of a neighbor.
