Little Century

Little Century
Keesey, Anna, 1962-

Eighteen-year-old orphan Esther Chambers heads west in search of her only living relative, her distant cousin, Ferris Pickett, in the lawless frontier town of Century, Oregon. There's a lot of wide open land in Century but, somehow, not enough. Esther has arrived in the middle of a range war; it's cattle against sheep, and water's at a premium. Small incidents of violence swiftly escalate; before long, blood spills on the dry ground, and the railroad starts to think twice about laying tracks through Century. No railroad means no town, something Pick and his men will go to any lengths to prevent. Meanwhile, Esther finds her sympathies divided between her cousin and a sheepherder named Ben Cruff, a sworn enemy of the cattle ranchers. As her passion for Ben and her land grows, she begins to see how at odds these things are with her cousin's own interests. She can't be loyal to both; at some point she'll have to make a terrible choice.

The Big Rock Candy Mountain

The Big Rock Candy Mountain
Stegner, Wallace, 1909-1993

"Bo Mason, his wife, and his two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair. Drifting from town to town and from state to state, the violent, ruthless Bo seeks his fortune in the hotel business, in new farmland, and, eventually, in illegal rum-running throughout the treacherous back roads of the American Northwest. Based largely on his own childhood, Stegner has created a masterful, harrowing saga of a family trying to survive during the lean years of the early twentieth century. It is the conflict between the hardscrabble existence and Bo's pursuit of the frontier myth and of the American Dream that gives the book such resonance and power"--Container.
