Book Details

Title:Raintree County
Lockridge Jr., Ross   
Published:   1948
Publisher:Houghton Mifflin Company
Tags:fiction, historical

John Shawnessy is a small town teacher and poet who in his younger days meets and marries a beautiful but emotionally unstable Southern belle. The novel is set in fictional Raintree County, Indiana, and is essentially in two parts; before the Civil War and after. It spans the 19th century history of the United States, from the pre-Civil War westward expansion, to the debate over slavery, to the Civil War, to the Industrial Revolution and the Labor Movement which followed. The book is often surreal, with dream sequences, flashbacks and departures from the linear narrative. It has been described as an effort to mythologize the history of America, which to a great degree it succeeds in doing through the eyes and the commentary of the main character John Shawnessy.
