A vintage of yank realism, A Son of the center Border (1917) is the genuine coming-of-age odyssey of a farm boy who—informed by way of the whole brute strength of a homesteaders' lifestyles at the huge unbroken prairie—would develop into a preeminent American author of the early 20th century. Pulitzer Prize winner Hamlin Garland's attractive autobiography recounts his trip from a rural adolescence to the research of literature and the sciences in Boston, his very important connections with such inspirations as William Dean Howell, and finally his reclaimed feel of identification as a author of the Midwest's attractive but challenging land. This definitive publication positioned Garland between such regionalist writers as Willa Cather, Sherwood Anderson, and Theodore Dreiser.
