It’s hard for Carol, a young college graduate, to adjust from city life to living in tiny Gopher Prairie Minnesota after marrying the local doctor. Determined to bring culture to the small town, Carol is thwarted by gossip, greed and bigotry. This classic 1920’s story by Sinclair Lewis is known for its satire of both the townspeople and the superficial intellectualism of those who despise them.
