It was a sea of solid treetops…as far as the eye could reach, this lonely forest sea rolled on and on till its faint blue billows broke against an incredibly distant horizon.

Considered among the very best of American historical literature, The Awakening Land Trilogy—The Trees, The Fields, and The Town (which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1951)—transports readers to the early American frontier. In The Trees, Sayward Luckett, a strong and capable fifteen-year-old girl, moves with her family to the untamed Ohio Valley after the Revolutionary War, carving out a home in the vast forest and enduring unimaginable hardships along the way. The successive books follow Sayward as she marries and starts her own family, while a farming community grows around her, and eventually an industrialized town. Though he wrote these classics in the twentieth century, Conrad Richter was a dogged researcher with a profound gift for immersive storytelling, and this vivid portrait of early America feels immediate, authentic (watch out for outdated language!), and absolutely riveting. Set of three (UX1662) or sold individually (UX1542).
