"Possibly My Most Unusual Listen Ever"
Michael O'Halloran is the charming Gene Stratton-Porter novel of an orphaned newspaper seller who asks nothing of the world except to "be square". The book presents a vivid description of American life in 1914 and, though the characters suffer many hardships, the overall tone is so upbeat that it's easy to see why this book outsold Pollyanna in 1916. Stratton-Porter's skills as a naturalist make the country scenes especially vibrant. Her ear for dialogue is unsurpassed, demonstrating to the listener that, if life in America wasn't like this, it should have been.
Scotch-Irish immigrants Jimmy Malone and Dannie MacNous are partners in an earlier Indiana trapping and fishing enterprise; a picture of life and relationships in conflict, with each partner in love with the same woman.
