Buck Steichen is doing his best to endure the tribulations that accompany living in rural Minnesota during a time of drought, insect infestations, and other hardships. Buck eventually finds happiness with Ellie Eberling, and in July 1874, he marries her, purchases farmland, and builds a house. It seems Buck has realized the American dream-or so he thinks. Rough on Rats is an epic tale of a family's struggles in rural Minnesota as they do everything in their power to survive amid trying times. "The book captures your attention immediately and holds your interest throughout, wanting to find out what happens next to Buck. I think we can all relate to those who try so hard, only to be beaten down again and again." -Vicky Anderson,Otter Tail County Historical Society "I really enjoyed it. I actually found it easy and fast to read. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next." -Mary Pfeffer, East Otter Tail County Museum
