Summary, etc.:
Sherwood Anderson's most enduring work, Winesburg, Ohio, is considered one of earliest works of modernist literature. The sequence of short stories centers on the life of George Willard and those who live in the rural, pre-industrial town. "Adventure," a short story within the novel, tells the tale of Alice Hindman, a twenty-something girl, and her continued devotion to her former lover Ned Currie, who left her to seek his fortune in Chicago. A story of self-discovery and heartache, "Adventure" is representative of why Winesburg, Ohio is considered one of the best novels of the twentieth century. Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
