Description

These short stories, originally published in 1891, are set in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota, or what the Garland called the "Middle Border." They depict an agrarian life of exploitation, misogyny, and poverty. Garland's radical, realist stories refute romantic conceptions of the rural Midwest.
