I don't even know where to begin, but I can simply say that this book was wonderful.It was beautifully written, simple yet vivid, and the story evoked the images of earlier times, that were both simpler and more difficult than the world we know now.It was very easy to become immersed in the book and its characters and to form strong attachments to them.There was also a sense of familiarity to the story, which I found comforting.This may be due to the fact that I grew up in Minnesota, the product of Norwegian and German immigrants, who had also immigrated around this same time.Many of the stories I heard growing up were similar to this story and its a time period heavily taught in school, through books and movies.The story also reminded me of a grown up version of the Little House on the Prairie books, which I also loved as a child.I was disappointed to read reviews who complained that there was no plot.This was simply the story of multiple families who crossed paths at a pivotal point in time, in Black Hawk, Nebraska, and we get the first person perspective of that experience through our narrator, Jim Burden.The story didn't need a plot...the story is about life.You can't have a better plot than that.I highly recommend this story to anyone who wants to know more about life on the prairie or who simply appreciates this special and unique time in our Country's history.
