In our Best Books citation, PW wrote, "In a narrative that feels like the literary equivalent of a grand old western movie, the author paints a vivid picture of turn-of-the-20th-century settlers who arrive at a barren patch of land in Oklahoma with the dream of creating a city there." Ages 10-up. (Feb.)
