Midwest Book Review
This review is from: The Emerald Prairie
Set in the American West during the late 1800s, The Emerald Prairie by Harold G. Ross is the sweeping and highly recommended story of a pioneer family looking to stake their claim on Kansas prairie. A tale of faith in God, survival, and a young man who grows up tested by destiny yet driven by the courage and challenge passed on in his blood, The Emerald Prairie is a moving tale that brings a bygone era vividly alive and documents Harold Ross as an original author and a talented master of the western genre.
