Synopsis:

Willa Cather's second novel is a timeless tale of a strong pioneer woman facing great challenges, shining a light on the immigrant experience, and revealing the emerging voice of one of our greatest authors.

About the Author

Born in Virginia in 1873 and raised on a Nebraska ranch, Willa Cather is known for her beautifully evocative short stories and novels about the American West. Cather became the managing editor for McClure’s Magazine in 1906 and lived for forty years in New York City with her companion Edith Lewis. In 1922 Cather won the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, the story of a Western boy in World War I. In 1933 she was awarded the Prix Femina Americaine “for distinguished literary accomplishments.” She died in 1947.
