When Carol Milford marries Dr. Will Kennicott, he convinces her to leave the city life she is accustomed to in Minneapolis and relocate to his home-town of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. Carol is taken aback by the little town's backward ways and ugly appearance. She soon sets about to "improve" it.
The book chronicles her transformative struggle with a local culture deeply set in its ways.
