At a time when rural romanticism was in literary vogue, he described conditions for midwestern farmers as they really were and promoted a wide variety of reforms to improve their lives, including women's rights legislation and single-tax reform. The volume reprints much of Garland's radical fiction and nonfiction from between 1887 and 1894, almost all previously uncollected, including four of his most outspoken stories depicting farm conditions of the time. Fueled by moral outrage and a cry for justice shaped by his own family's hardships in Wisconsin, Iowa, and South Dakota, the radical writing of his early career is filled with compassion and fury. Seeking to reinvigorate an appreciation and understanding of Garland's centrality in the rise of a post-Civil War radical spirit in American expression, this collection assembles the most vibrant and representative examples of his radical 1890s writings.

Nei racconti raccolti in Le vie più battute (Main-travelled roads, 1891) e nei romanzi, tra i quali gli autobiografici Il figlio della frontiera (A son of the Middle Border, 1917) e Avamposti della frontiera (Trail-makers of the Middle Border, 1926), G. rievocò la vita quotidiana dei pionieri, superando la rappresentazione pittoresca e sentimentale di molta parte della narrativa regionalista per affrontare con vigoroso...
