Abstract:

A Son of the Middle Border is an epic story of the quest for new frontiers during the last half of the nineteenth century and of the gradual, heartbreaking failure of America's pioneer ideal. Drawing on the history of his own family, Hamlin Garland chronicles the experiences of a generation. Garland's bittersweet narrative of growing up on a Wisconsin farm, captures in detail the stories of the thousands of courageous and optimistic Americans who sought new and prosperous lives on the mid-western frontier and discovered not only the grandeur of the plains but the immense toll nature demands from those who try to tame the land.
