The Emigrants

Cover
Penguin, 1998 - 306 Seiten


Imlay's delightful epistolary adventure of 1793, set on the American frontier, was one of the first American novels. The trials of an emigrant family in the Ohio River Valley of Kentucky contrast the decadence of Europe with the utopian promise of the American West. Its sensational love plots also dramatize the novel's surprising feminist allegiances.
