Item description for Tall Trees, Tall People by Rex Southwell...

A rugged climate breeds a rugged people, and the Southwells were no exception. Grover, the son of a ship's carpenter, is the victim of a broken marriage and is sent to Coldwater Orphanage. Made a ward of the state, he is placed with a merciless farmer who won't let Grover stop working long enough to go to school. His father returns for him on his eighteenth birthday, only to find an embittered young man. Grover's story of forgiveness, financial struggle, family love, and salvation encompasses more than just a woodsman's tale of the early twentieth century, it chronicles the settling of the vast northern reaches of a harsh land and the sacrifices that were made to tame it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tall Trees, Tall People?

Outstanding and believable  Apr 14, 2006
Well seeing as this book was written about my father, Grandad and Grandma, I totally know how factually it is. Still I read it cover to cover when he wrote the first draft and it was wonderful in its infants stages. These were truly remarkable people, hardworking, honest to a fault, and helping always when they could. I have many homeschooling moms wanting to read this to their kids and the kids beg for more. We are very proud of this piece of my history and was so glad Uncle Rex got it done. I hope you have many hours of happy reading. Sandra Southwell Harold's daughter)
Tall Trees, Tall People  Aug 17, 2005
This has got to be one of the best books describing in detail living in the early 1900's. Mr. Southwell, keeps you so interested and the book is so hard to put down. It is excellent..would advise anyone interested in history, especially in the history of Michigan and the lumber era to read this book and pass it to your children and grandchildren. An excellent excellent book..well done.
Tells the story of one family's struggle   Sep 12, 2004
Tall Trees, Tall People by Rex Southwell is a deftly written novel that takes place in northern Michigan and tells the story of one family's struggle against a background of cutting virgin timber, clearing land, and making a life in the far north woods. Set in the early twentieth century, it tells of a young man made a ward of the state, and placed with a farmer who won't let him stop working long enough to go to school. When the young man turns eighteen, his father returns, only to find his son consumed with bitterness. The road to forgiveness is a long and rocky one, amid financial pressures, the perils of an untamed wilderness, and bonds of family love that at times stretch tenuously thin. Highly recommended.
A Must-Read  Jun 25, 2004
Masterfully written, this book takes you through the tragedies and triumphs of everyday life as a family struggles to survive and succeed during the logging days in Northern Michigan. I found this book had the perfect blend of detailed descriptions, humor, and life lessons to leave me feeling as if I knew Grover and Grace personally. This is certainly a must-read, especially if you have any interest in accurate portrayals of life during this era.
Great book.  Jun 24, 2004
For someone who grew up in Northern Michigan, this book certainly grabbed my interest. However, it turned out to be more than just a historical account of the early mid-west.

This book will appeal to anyone interested in a touching story about a boy and his struggle to be a man. It covers his efforts to build a family and mature as a person through the years before and during the great depression.

The book started strong and finished great. In the middle of the book there were a couple chapters which seemed to simply record history than tell a story, but otherwise this is an excellent book.

I highly recommend it to anyone.
