it was amazing

It’s rare that a book is both deeply educational and immensely entertaining. This book by (for some reason now little-known) Edna Ferber hits on the money for both counts. Come for the hijinks of Texas cattle ranching society, stay for the astute (but never preachy) descriptions of Texan/Mexican history, the Texas landscape, and a portrait of a family tied to their land and a woman smart beyond her years who tests those bonds. Lush, beautiful page turner of a book. I learned a TON about Texas in Ferber’s capable hands.
