More informationLonglisted 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.
