Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This edition of Cather's brief novel has a ton of scholarly extras (which are actually longer than the novel itself), including a historical essay and explanatory notes, a textual essay, numerous illustrations (photos, drawings, and maps), and more. Strictly for the academic set, especially at this price.

It's great this book is available but I was truly disappointed when I found out it wasn't formatted properly and I'd have to change the font size before it would fit properly on my nook. By then, however, it was too small for me to comfortably read, so I have to give it a pass.

If you like not quite modern stories this one's for you. Starts off a little slow but builds with an unexpected twist at the end. Very good story!
