Cimarron Rose is a beautifully written, evocative novel that tells the story of two families and their intertwined histories in the Oklahoma Territory during the early days of the cattle industry. The story follows the descendants of the Rose family, who are forced to abandon their home and way of life when a destructive wildfire destroys their ranch in 1892. The family is reunited seventy-five years later, when their great-granddaughter falls in love with a man who is also the grandson of the ranch's original owner. The story culminates with the reunion of the Rose and the Mitchell families and their celebrations of both the old and the new ways of life. Burke's lyrical writing captures the beauty and the harshness of life on the open prairie, and his characters are unforgettable.; 8vo; FSA.
