Publisher Description

“The Bean Trees is the work of a visionary. . . . It leaves you open-mouthed and smiling.”  — Los Angeles Times

A bestseller that has come to be regarded as an American classic, The Bean Trees is the novel that launched Barbara Kingsolver’s remarkable literary career.

It is the charming, engrossing tale of rural Kentucky native Taylor Greer, who only wants to get away from her roots and avoid getting pregnant. She succeeds, but inherits a three-year-old Native American girl named Turtle along the way, and together, from Oklahoma to Arizona, half-Cherokee Taylor and her charge search for a new life in the West. Hers is a story about love and friendship, abandonment and belonging, and the discovery of surprising resources in seemingly empty places.

This edition includes a P.S. section with additional insights from the author, background material, suggestions for further reading, and more.

Odd. Interesting.

This book is quite good, it's very heartwarming and different. I would recommend reading this but watch out if your younger there are hardships and terrible saddening things in this book. it makes for a great story though!

The Bean Trees

Poignant, sweet. I loved the dialogue. My Mom used some of those expressions. Second time reading this book. Now I’m going to reread some more of Barbara Kingsolver books.

Great book

I am 13 years old, and had to read this book for school. It was one of the best books I have read in a long time. I would 100% recommend this book.
