Overview

Die klassieke verhaal van die Bergsons, 'n gesin Sweedse-Amerikaanse immigrante in die plaas land naby die fiktiewe dorp Hanover, Nebraska, aan die begin van die 20ste eeu.

Die hoofkarakter, Alexandra Bergson, erf die familieplaas wanneer haar pa sterf en sy spandeer haar lewe om die plaas 'n lewensvatbare onderneming te maak in 'n tyd wanneer baie ander immigrantfamilies opgee en die prairie verlaat. Die roman is ook bekommerd oor twee romantiese verhoudings, een tussen Alexandra en familievriend Carl Linstrum en die ander tussen Alexandra se broer Emil en die getroude Marie Shabata.
