About this Item

"The names have been changed but most, if not all of the events he {Roy L. Chaffee} describes can be documents, such as the cyclone that killed his parents in 1881. The Lura Cemetery holds the gravestones with their names and the date. In all, his 'novel' can be read as a history of those involved in the great dispora that followed the war over slavery." This book has 220 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the editor, Marjorie {Marge} Chaffee Bartholomew. Bookseller Inventory # 041945

About this title


An adventure story and a history of four generations moving west from Illinois during the Civil War to what was called the Western Desert of Minnesota and the Dakotas but which was in fact the richest farm land ever discovered. The story follows the generations through all the heartbreaks and many joys of the transition from a nearly medieval society of primitive agriculture, medicine and pre-machine age life into the full development of hy-bred crops, mechanical harvesters, the telephone, automobile, highways and the airplane as well as the increasingly brutal and horrific automatizing and industrialization of warfare from the U.S. Civil War, the Spainish-American and World War I.

About the Author:

Author Roy L. Chaffee died in 1947 and was a member of the 4th generation of the family whose history he chronicles in The Quitclaim. Chaffee's daughter discovered her father's manuscript in 1999 and brought it to Lone Oak Press, which brought it into publication in 2001.
