    Follow the lives of Bo and Elsa through the 20th Century

    An incredibly literate journey through the 20th century. We travel with Bo and Elsa through their meeting through marriage, children and ultimately old age and death. Their lives believably weave through the most important events of the century. Bo is always looking for his Big Rock Candy Mountain,while Elsa, like women everywhere works on keeping her family together. I first read this book 30 years ago as a 21 year old college student and just reread it as a Grandma. It still holds the honor of being my all time favorite novel.

    Big Rock Candy Mountain is a wonderful read!

    This semi-autobiographical novel is a wonderful look at life in the mid-west and west from 1900 to 1930. It is very well written. It presents the role of women as it was in those time.

    This book was the most outstanding book, and author I have read

    This book was the most outstanding book, and author I have read in a long time. This was truly an incredible journey experienced through the written word. It has been a number of years since I was in university, but I know I was not introduced to this remarkable author. It is my opinion that all students of American literature should be. It is my desire to read all that this man has written so as to experience his style to the fullest. I will long remember this tragedy.
