Praised by Alice Walker and many other bestselling 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.
