1929. Edna Ferber, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Show Boat and Giant, gives us a ripping good read with Cimarron, the story of wandering Yancey Cravat, a pioneer newspaper editor and lawyer. Cravat settles in Osage, a muddy town thrown together overnight when the Oklahoma territory opens in 1889. To this place he brings his wife Sabra, a woman both conventional and well-bred. Against all odds, Sabra develops a brilliant business sense. She makes a success of the newspaper, a success that ultimately leads her to Congress. Through Sabra's eyes we see the violent frontier collide with resentful Indians, the sodbusters tame the prairie, and the sudden fortune of a lucky few.
