Description: Larry Cook, an lowa farmer whose family has lived on the same land for four generations, has increased his holdings to a thousand acres. Now he suddenly, inexplicably, decides to retire and turn over this valuable land to his three daughters. Ginny, his accommodating eldest, and Rose, her angrier sister, who have catered to their father all their lives, accept the gift as their just reward. Caroline, the youngest who has left the farm to be a lawyer, questions the idea and Cook angrily cuts her out.

But the transfer of land becomes a fateful decision that will dismember the farm and part father from daughter, sister from sister, husband from wife. There are reverberations of King Lear in this novel, but "A Thousand Acres" stands as a great and memorable creation on its own.
