    ePUB The Trees eBook Ì Î nessville.me Î trees mobile, The Trees PDFEPUBWhen a man gets it into his head to move west there's not much a body can do to stop him Even if it means dragging the whole dirt poor family from Pennsylvania to Ohio through woods so deep one can't see the sky till the trees release their cargo come winter Such a place belongs to the wild creatures who roam not families with young 'uns But from now on his dank black mossy world will be called home and it doesn't do any one a lick of good to look behindThe story begins abruptly and the names are so unusual it took my mind a while to sort out who was who but once I did I couldn't put it down I've read many Westward expansion books but this is the first one that let me envision the country that was before the fields

    ePUB The Trees eBook Ì Î nessville.me Î trees mobile, The Trees PDFEPUBThis is a novel about the American frontier at a time in the late eighteenth century in eastern Ohio when the first settlers were beginning to trickle in from the states east of the Alleghenies Although it is a time that is long gone it is still part of the American imagined identity as rugged individualists making something out of untamed wilderness It was a time when the land north of the Ohio River was an unbroken sea of trees which created a world of dark first trails

    ePUB The Trees eBook Ì Î nessville.me Î trees mobile, The Trees PDFEPUBRichter's writing brought to mind the rhythms and cadences of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's The Yearling a pure reading of the time and state without one glimmer of the revisionist's eye The novel enveloped me in the pioneering world of 1790 middle America and I did not emerge until it rung its last stroke of the axe as the clearings began to show face in the crowded landscape of trees It felt to me a most accurate representation of what pioneering must have truly been like bugs and lice and the oppressive push of the trees for some; wilderness and freedom and pure elemental nature for others Even within the pioneering spirit there lay the dichotomy of town versus wilderness those who longed to carve out their space out of it and those who sought to submerge themselves within it On both counts Richter does justice to those brave men and w

    ePUB The Trees eBook Ì Î nessville.me Î trees mobile, The Trees PDFEPUBI read this award winning work of fiction on pioneering the Ohio river region a number of years agoI remember both the writing and story telling as excellent A cautionary note — this book is highly anachronistic as in it felt like it was written in 1900 about events 100 years earlier than that Actually it was written in 1950 30 to 45 stars depending on one’s preference for older books about even older topics
