The trilogy earned author Conrad Richter immense acclaim, ranking him with the greatest of American mid-century novelists. It includes The Trees (1940), The Fields (1946), and The Town (1950) and follows the varied fortunes of Sayward Luckett and her family in southeastern Ohio. The Town, the longest novel of the trilogy, won the 1951 Pulitzer Prize and received excellent reviews across the country.

Here is the tumultuous story of how the Lucketts grow to face the turmoil of the first half of the nineteenth century.
