About this product
- DescriptionThis powerful early Cather vel, a landmark of American fiction, tells the story of the young Alexandra Bergson, whose dying father leaves her in charge of the family and of the Nebraska lands they have struggled to farm. In Alexandra's lifelong fight to survive and succeed, Cather relates an important chapter in the history of the American frontier. Willa Cather said that O Pioneers! was her first authentic vel, the first time I walked off on my own feet-everything before was half real and half an imitation of writers whom I admired. Cather's vel of life on the Nebraska frontier established her reputation as a writer of great te and marked a significant turning point in her artistic development. No longer would she let literary convention guide the form of her writing; the materials themselves would dictate the structure.
- Author BiographyWilla Sibert Cather (1873-1947) was an American author who achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, in works such as O Pioneers!, My Antonia, and The Song of the Lark.
