Prairie Fever (Compact Disc)
Prairie Fever by Michael Parker is set in Oklahoma starting in 1917, with excursions to Wyoming and Texas. The characters, 2 sisters and their young male school teacher, are original and compelling and the place (cold!) is as much of a character as they are. It also has an underlying humor that made it fun to read. It reminded me of Paulette Jiles's wonderful News of the World.— Sarah
"The most beautiful novel I have read in quite some time. The language is that graceful and original, the events and characters that spellbinding and funny and moving; and always the melancholy beauty and mysterious power of the open prairie shine through." -TOM DRURY, author of Pacific.
