Considered her finest work and an American classic, Roberts's novel traces the coming of age of Ellen Chesser, the daughter of a poor itinerant farmer. Against all privations and the forces that would subdue her, Ellen is sustained by a sense of wonder and by an awareness of her own being. Reduced to the bare elements of life, her world becomes a ceremony of daily duties that bind her to the natural world and her family. The Time of Man stands as a beautifully written tribute to the human spirit.

I read this as part of one of my American Literature courses. It tells the story of a girl growng up as a migrant farmer. Elizabeth Madox Roberts is a magnificent writer who has gone unnoticed for far too long. More people should read this book. Then hopefully her other books will be brought back into print. The fact that this book has gone out of print once is too many.
