He rails against the tyranny of his Scottish grandmother, befriends a prairie wild boy, and experiences a series of deaths, culminating in the loss of his beloved father and grandmother. Along the way, he gleans understanding into the big questions of existance -- particularly mankind's relationship to nature, expressed in the relentlessly blowing wind of the prairie."--Container
