Episode 17: Frank Norris, The Octopus (2): Love in the Wheat Fields

April 6, 2017

Second episode on Frank Norris' The Octopus. We see the beginnings of the ranchers' resistance and some nice meditations on relationships past and future. It's still spring and nothing has matured yet. We also get one of the great barn dances of American liteature.
