Published in 1936, this novel presents in epic scope the conflicts in the settling of the American Southwest. Set in New Mexico in the late 19th century, The Sea of Grass concerns the often violent clashes between the pioneering ranchers, whose cattle range freely through the vast sea of grass, and the farmers, or nesters, who build fences and turn the sod.

Against this background is set the triangle of rancher Colonel Jim Brewton, his unstable Eastern wife Lutie, and the ambitious Brice Chamberlain. Richter casts the story in Homeric terms, with the children caught up in the conflicts of their parents. Download and start listening now!

    " Very much enjoyed--touching story about a changing time. "

    " A quick read about the changing American Southwest. Don't read this for the plot (though it's pretty close to Gilead), read it for the descriptions of the land and the people. "

    " Sea of Grass seems, if anything, better than I remembered from my first reading of probably 40 years ago. And the historical setting was much more meaningful having just read Timothy Egan's The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl. "
