    1900. Young pianist Catherine Wainwright flees the fashionable town of Dayton, Ohio in the wake of a terrible scandal. Heartbroken and facing destitution, she finds herself striking up correspondence with a childhood admirer, the recently widowed Oscar Williams. In desperation she agrees to marry him, but when Catherine travels to Oscar's farm on Galveston Island, Texas—a thousand miles from home—she finds she is little prepared for the life that awaits her.

    Praised by Alice Walker and many other best-selling writers, The Personal History of Rachel DuPree is an award-winning debut novel with incredible heart about life on the prairie as it's rarely been seen. Reminiscent of The Color Purple as well as the frontier novels of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Willa Cather, it opens a window on the little-known history of African American homesteaders and gives voice to an extraordinary heroine who embodies the spirit that built America.

    Longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, Ann Weisgarber’s moving and majestic debut highlights one black family’s struggle to survive the South Dakota Badlands. It’s 1917 - 14 years after Rachel and Isaac Dupree came to this unforgiving land - and Isaac is proud of his landed independence. But rain stops falling, cattle are dying, and supplies are gone. Desperate and exhausted, Rachel determines to do what’s right for her children, herself, and her husband.
