Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811212424, Paperback)Hugh arose and stood in the moonlight in the cabbage field, his arms still going stiffly up and down. The great length of his figure and his arms was accentuated by the wavering uncertain light. The laborers, aware of some strange presence, sprang to their feet and stood listening and looking. Hugh advanced toward them, still muttering words and waving his arms. Terror took hold of the workers. One of the woman plant droppers screamed and ran away across the field, and the others ran crying at her heels. "Don't do it. Go away," the older of the French boys shouted, and then he with his brothers also ran.

One of Anderson's most successful works, this 1920 novel moves from the banks of the Mississippi River to a small town in Ohio, tracing the rise from poverty of inventor Hugh McVey. As in Winesburg , Ohio , Anderson's critique of industrialization's impact on the land and soul of rural America is scathing.
