    1. This is said to have been my grandfather's favorite book. It sounds like him, so close to the land. As I read it, I could see him walking through the woods.


    2. This was a two year bestseller, coming in at number five for both 1900 and 1901. Somewhat a strange title in that while Eben Holden is a major character in the book, he's not the hero of the story. Kind of like having a book about Luke Skywalker and naming it R2D2. The story is about his nephew William Brower and written in the first person from his perspective. The book covers William growing up as an orphan in his uncle's care from about age 6. Most of the book takes place in upper New York ne [...]


    3. Moralistic, sentimental and predictable—on the surface, Eben Holden doesn't seem to have a lot to recommend it. But it was among the top ten bestselling novels for two years (1900-1901). If you're seeking insight into the values and interests of the average American at the tail end of the 19th century, you could do a lot worse. The episodic plot follows a boy from backwoods to big city to battlefield, guided by the gentle humor and good, common sense of his "Uncle Eb." Along the way, we meet H [...]



    4. A novel about the Adirondacks during the middle of the 19th century. Mostly anecdotal, it gives a hopefully accurate portrayal of life in that place in those times. Unfortunately, it loses momentum once the title character leaves the story and the narrator goes to New York City to pursue a career in journalism and woo his childhood sweetheart. There is an interesting but melodramatic section about the Battle of Bull Run and then the story lags again despite the return of Uncle Eb. I don't know i [...]


    5. fair. it felt like two different novels because it starts with prairies and farms and ends in NYC with a little Civil War in the middle. but that's the nature of a biography, I suppose. also the sudden return of the long "dead" son was completely out of sync with the rest of the book which was very practical. and it was all in dialect too which is just a distraction to me when I read. you'd probably like it if you love historical fiction which I usually don't.
