A Great American Novel and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1972! It follows the Ward family from the late 1800s to San Francisco in the 1960s, as they make their life in the American West. Stegner writes intimately about history, managing to convey both the harsh realities of frontier life with the romanticism that this period holds for many. A compelling and deep read.
