About the Author
Born in Virginia, Willa Cather (1873-1948) moved with her family to Nebraska before she was ten, which later provided the setting for her best-known novels. The books O Pioneers! and My Antonia, especially, with their focus on immigrant life on the prairie, established Cather as a major American novelist.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book was suggested for my book club. I had never read Cather and loved the story and lyricism of her writing. An homage to Nebraska and the women who were a large part of her heritage. Should definitely be included in the list of great American literature .
This was a reread for me and I loved it even more the second time around. Such vivid descriptions of farm life that it left me both exhausted and craving that way of life.
