'Very beautiful prose, simple yet bright with imagery and so
distinctive that one could mistake no single paragraph for the work
of any other writer. Johnson belongs in the tradition of Emily
Bronte and Emily Dickinson' * New York Times Book Review *
'First published in 1934, five years before The Grapes of Wrath, its calm, near Biblical rural voice won the Missouri-born 24-year-old author a deserved Pulitzer Prize' * Irish Times *
