This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger Book Summary

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

“If you liked Where the Crawdads Sing, you’ll love This Tender Land...This story is as big-hearted as they come.” —Parade

The unforgettable story of four orphans who travel the Mississippi River on a life-changing odyssey during the Great Depression.

In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota’s Gilead River, Odie O’Banion is an orphan confined to the Lincoln Indian Training School, a pitiless place where his lively nature earns him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee after committing a terrible crime, he and his brother, Albert, their best friend, Mose, and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own.

Over the course of one summer, these four orphans journey into the unknown and cross paths with others who are adrift, from struggling farmers and traveling faith healers to displaced families and lost souls of all kinds. With the feel of a modern classic, This Tender Land is an enthralling, big-hearted epic that shows how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams, and makes us whole.

The type of book that you can't put down, but as you near the end, you are tempted to slow down because you don't want it to end! Once again, a book that tells the story of hardships in life that so many young children, particularly during the depression years, suffered unnecessarily at the hands of greedy and plain mean adults! The Native American children were certainly ill treated and cruelly kidnapped from their tribes under the false pretense of it being " for their own good". I could not stop reading. It did not seem to be the length that it is! How I hated the "Black Witch" as did the four vagabonds! Yet, there were redeeming caring adults who were sympathetic to the needs of the "family"of four youngsters. The adults who did so, were honest and kind and generous to share what little they had out of genuine concern for their welfare. Wonderful, believable characters, even the mean ones were truly despicable! I would highly recommend this book!

- Wonderful book5 star

One of the best stories I’ve ever read. Amazing American classic

- A little overdone but worth your time4 star

Someone described this as a book you would like if you enjoyed “I Know Where The Crawdad Sings” and that is not a fair comparison. Crawdad is a better crafted story. But this book is worth your time. You will care about the characters and nearly get whiplash from all the plot twists. The author clearly did a lot of research to inform his story and I appreciate the added effort.

This is a wonderful story that has helped me pass time during the Covid 19 isolation. As my family and I struggle through the uncertainty of our time, it was comforting to watch these characters work their way through the terrible uncertainty of the Great Depression. Graceful writing, tender stories and vivid scenes remind me that this is a beautiful world that begs us to look for the simple beauty all around us. This is a book to savor.

- Breathtaking5 star

Ordinary Grace quickly rose to a lifetime favorite for me and This Tender Land was no different. WKK has such an incredible way of describing the heartbreak that is life while also it’s beauty.

Amazing. A true epic. A cross between Grapes of Wrath and Water for Elephants

- Excellent book5 star

I enjoyed it immensely.

- Modern day fairytale4 star

Excellent and imaginative! The story is unique , filled with creative characters. The middle part was the least likable in my opinion. But, the beginning and end are quite satisfying.

- Amazing Journey5 star

1932....I feel like I was there with the 4 Vagabonds on their journey. Mr. Krueger is an awesome storyteller.....just like Odie.
