  • "Roman om nogle dramatiske måneder for en amerikanske landbofamilie i vore dage; både gården og familien går i opløsning."
  • "En 1979, Larry Cook, un fermier orgueilleux de l'Iowa, dont la famille vit sur cette terre depuis quatre générations, décide soudain de prendre sa retraite et de remettre cette terre si précieuse à ses trois filles. Il se met alors à boire. Surviennent de nombreuses crises. C'est la fin d'un monde."
  • "Aging Larry Cook announces his intention to turn over his 1,000-acre farm--one of the largest in Zebulon County, Iowa--to his three daughters, Caroline, Ginny and Rose. A man of harsh sensibilities, he carves Caroline out of the deal because she has the nerve to be less than enthusiastic about her father's generosity. While Larry Cook deteriorates into a pathetic drunk, his daughters are left to cope with the often grim realities of life on a family farm--from battering husbands to cutthroat lenders."@en
  • "The time is 1979. Larry Cook, a proud and exacting farmer, whose family has lived on this land for four generations, unexpectedly decides to retire and turn over his valuable holdings to his three daughters. For Ginny and Rose, who live on the farm with their husbands, the gift makes sense - a reward for years of hard work, a challenge to make the farm even more successful. But the youngest, Caroline, a Des Moines lawyer, flatly rejects the idea, and in anger her father cuts her out - setting off an explosive series of events that will leave none of them unchanged. A classic story of contemporary American life, A Thousand Acres strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a father, a daughter, a family."
