Movie Adaptations of Edna Ferber’s Cimarron. Being the great niece of Edna Ferber came with obligations. I was to read as much of her work as I was able, as early as possible. At the age of eleven, I was packed off to summer camp with the novels So Big, Show Boat, and Cimarron.

Hence Cimarron by Edna Ferber. Set against the rough and tumble Oklahoma land rush of 1889 and continuing through the fledgling state’s formative years, Cimarron tells the story of the Cravat family, plucky pioneers settling one of America’s last frontiers. It’s pretty much a one generation, historical family saga – much like I imagine a Mitchener book might be – and (truth be told) a genre that I usually can’t be bothered with.

Cravat settles in Osage, a muddy town thrown together overnight when the Oklahoma territory opens in 1889. Cravat settles in Osage, a muddy town thrown together overnight when the Oklahoma territory opens in 1889.

Edna Ferber, Julie Gilbert. The basis for the Academy Award-winning major motion picture starring Best Actor nominee Richard Dix and Best Actress nominee Irene Dunne. This vivid and sweeping tale of the Oklahoma Land Rush, from Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Ferber, traces the stunning challenges of settling an untamed frontier. Staking claim to their new home in Osage, Yancey Cravat, a spellbinding criminal lawyer, and his wife, well-bred Sabra, work against seemingly overwhelming odds to create a prosperous life for themselves.

Cimarron is a novel by Edna Ferber, published in 1929 and based on development in Oklahoma after the Land Rush. The book was adapted into a critically acclaimed film of the same name in 1931 through RKO Pictures. In 1960, the story was again adapted. In 1960, the story was again adapted for the screen by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, to meager success. The Oklahoma Land Rush (also called the Oklahoma Land Race and Cherokee Strip Land Run) plays a pivotal role in both the novel and film adaptations

Comments to eBook Cimarron

This is a book I've always wanted to read after seeing the movie---as has happened with many of the books I have read. I'm enjoying this book very much and the fact that I've been able to find many of the books I've been reading lately on Amazon is wonderful....I retired a few years ago and decided that I wanted to read the books of many of the movies I've always loved. The problem was finding the books.....well, I keep finding them on Amazon and it's so easy to use that I continue to use your service---I am so thrilled.

I have no idea why I'd never read Edna Ferber before, but I will be reading all her works now! This was a magnificent epic of the settlement of Oklahoma. A must-read for any fan of American history and the Old West.

I read this many years ago and thought I would like to read it again. It just didn’t age well for me. I didn’t finish it.

Cimarron is a good book and a classic slice of Americana, but the copy you sent me was ridiculous. As I read it each page I finished started to fall apart. It was so brittle I left a trail of torn paper behind me as I read it. It was a disgrace that you allowed a book in that condition to be sold and shipped.
