Prairie Folks by Hamlin Garland
While he is very obscure today, Hamlin Garland was one of the leading American writers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Garland's stories about the people of the Middle Border--the upper Midwest and Great Plains--offer insightful and realistic takes on these hard working, hardscrabble farmers. While some of his attempts to capture accents can confuse modern readers, Garland shines light on the humanity of his subjects.
