The superb first-person account of Mississippi pioneer girl struggling to live to tell the tale, guard her kinfolk and make a house within the early American South

Near the top of her lifestyles, Mary Mann Hamilton (1866 - c.1936) all started recording her studies within the backwoods of the Mississippi Delta. the result's this magnificent first-person account of a pioneer girl who braved grueling paintings, profound tragedy, and a pitiless desolate tract (she and her family members confronted floods, tornadoes, fires, bears, panthers, and snakes) to guard her domestic within the early American South.

An early draft of Trials of the Earth was submitted to a writers' pageant backed by means of Little, Brown in 1933. It did not win, and we nearly misplaced the opportunity to carry this uncooked, brilliant narrative to readers. Eighty-three years later, in partnership with Mary Mann Hamilton's descendants, we are proud to percentage this irreplaceable piece of yank background. Written in spare, wealthy prose, Trials of the Earth is a important checklist of 1 woman's impressive patience and braveness that might resonate with readers of background and fiction alike.
