Daughter of the Middle Borderby Hamlin Garland
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1922, A Daughter of the Middle Border is Hamlin Garland's classic account of his early years in Chicago, when-having grown up on the rough open prairie and then worked his way into the East Coast literary world-he settles into a Bohemian encampment of artists and writers. There he meets Zulime Taft, an artist who captures his heart and eventually becomes his wife. The intensity of this romance is rivaled only by Garland's struggle between America's coastal elite and his heartland roots. The sequel to Garland's A Son of the Middle Border, this classic of American realism presents an engaging story for first-time readers and Garland fans alike.
