9780140139396: The Big Rock Candy Mountain (Contemporary American Fiction)

Bo Mason, his wife, Elsa, and their two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair. Drifting from town to town and from state to state, the violent, ruthless Bo seeks out his fortune—in the hotel business, in new farmland, and, eventually, in illegal rum-running through the treacherous back roads of the American Northwest.

Stegner portrays more than thirty years in the life of the Mason family in this masterful, harrwoing saga of people trying to survive during the lean years of the early twentieth century.

About the Author:

Wallace Stegner (1909–1993) published more than two dozen books throughout his life, including the novels Angle of Repose, which won the Pulitzer Prize; Crossing to Safety; and The Spectator Bird, which won the National Book Award. An early environmentalist, Stegner was instrumental—with his now famous “Wilderness Letter”—in the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act.
 
Robert Stone (introducer; 1937–2015) wrote more than ten books, including the National Book Award–winning novel Dog Soldiers and the novels Outerbridge Reach and A Flag for Sunrise

Review:

"Stegner has felt the spell of mountain and prairie, of draught, flood, and blizzard. . . . A harrowing saga"
The New York Times

"Stands out beautifully and unforgettably."
The New Yorker
