Some brief overview of book

In the tradition of such classics as My Ántonia and There Will Be Blood, Anna Keeseys Little Century is a resonant and moving debut novel by a writer of confident gifts. Orphaned after the death of her mother, eighteen-year-old Esther Chambers heads west in search of her only living relative. In the lawless frontier town of Century, Oregon, shes met by her distant cousin, a laconic cattle rancher named Ferris Pickett.

Pick leads her to a tiny cabin by a small lake called Half-a-Mind, and there she begins her new life as a homesteader. If she can hold out for five years, the land will join Picks already impressive spread. But Esther discovers that this town on the edge of civilization is in the midst of a range war.

Theres plenty of land, but somehow it is not enough for the ranchersits cattle against sheep, with water at a premium. In this charged climate, small incidents of violence swiftly escalate, and Esther finds her sympathies divided between her cousin and a sheepherder named Ben Cruff, a sworn enemy of the cattle ranchers. As her feelings for Ben and for her land grow, she begins to see she cant be loyal to both.

Little Century maps our countrys cutthroat legacy of dispossession and greed, even as it celebrates the ecstatic visions of what America could become.
