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.

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
