  • "Un vieil historien s'occupe à trier des archives de famille. C'est ainsi qu'il va tomber sur les carnets laissés par sa grand-mère, une jeune femme des années 1880 qui parcourt l'Ouest sauvage avec son chercheur d'or de mari et dont la vie ne sera qu'une suite de dégringolades et de désillusions... Un roman de 1971, qui valut le prix Pulitzer à son auteur."
  • "The author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is the story of four generations in the life of an American family. Lyman Ward, a retired professor of history and author of books about the Western frontier, returns to his ancestral home of Grass Valley, Californai, in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

  • "Wallace Stegner's uniquely American classic centers on Lyman Ward, a noted historian who relates a fictionalized biography of his pioneer grandparents at a time when he has become estranged from his own family. Through a combination of research, memory, and exaggeration, Ward voices ideas concerning the relationship between history and the present, art and life, parents and children, husbands and wives. Set in many parts of the West, Angle of Repose is a story of discovery--personal, historical, and geographical--that endures as Wallace Stegner's masterwork: an illumination of yesterday's reality that speaks to today's."@en
