The Awakening Land Trilogy: The Town

The Town book coverFEATURED GREAT LITERATURE:

“In this superb novel—the longest Mr. Richter has written—Sayward, the eldest daughter of Worth and Jary Luckett, completes her mission and lives to see the transition of her family and her friends, American pioneers, from the ways of the wilderness to the ways of civilization.

Here is the tumultuous story of the Lucketts, an American family born in the wilderness, grown to face the changing ways of America during the turmoil that was the first half of the nineteenth century.

The Trees began the story of Worth and Jary, a wild and woodsfaring family who lived a roaming life, pushing ever westward as the frontier advanced and as new settlements threatened their isolation.

How young Sayward and her family, facing the realization that the forests had become fields and settlements, took up the arduous task of tilling the Ohio soil was the story continued in The Fields.

But The Town is a much bigger book in every way than its predecessors; it is in fact a major literary event and with them comprises a great American epic.” (via Amazon)
