"The secret of [Harold Bell Wright's] power is the same God-given secret that inspired Shakespeare and upheld Dickens." --Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch "It is this almost clairvoyant power of reading the human soul that has made Mr. Wright's books among the most remarkable works of the present age." --Oregon Journal The eastern plains of Colorado hold many secrets, including the origin of an orphaned four-year-old girl found near her dead mother by five weary travelers. The girl, who calls herself "Barba," is adopted by one of the five, wealthy financier Jefferson Worth. In the years that follow, it becomes clear that the fates of Barbara Worth and the plains are inexorably linked, and that--together--they will profoundly alter the destinies of all the men in their lives. Originally published in 1911 with a first printing of 175,000 copies, Harold Bell Wright's moral fable of the ministry of capital followed the tremendous success of his earlier books, That Printer of Udell's, The Shepherd of the Hills, and The Calling of Dan Matthews, all of which are available in paperback editions from Pelican.
