Hence Cimarron by Edna Ferber. Set against the rough and tumble Oklahoma The most popular book of ! So my expectations were low …. Ferber picks a great setting for her story. Her character work is also quite nice. The downside is that — as in the real world -- the cute and quaint is tarred pretty heavily with prejudice. The daughter of a Jewish family, Ferber knew discrimination well, and she portrays it unflinchingly in Cimarron, describing the racism faced by women, African Americans, Native Americans, and Jews in the territory.

And this is where Cimarron is deceptively complex. Mostly it reads like a bright historical romance, but then there are these awful deep parts — none darker than what happens to the poor boy Isaiah — all presented at face value, leaving the reader to parse out the inequality.

Menfolk, for example, may have grabbed the headlines and been made the subject of statues with their six-shooters and swagger, but it was the indefatigable pioneer women — largely overlooked -- who laid the bedrock for the society that grew on those empty plains. Ultimately, Cimarron is a subtle cry for recognition for all those folk that pioneer history had seemed to forget, ignore or outright abuse.
