About the Author
Willa Cather [1873-1947] was ten years old when she moved with her family from Virginia to Nebraska. The family farmed in Red Cloud, Nebraska. She was homeshooled until High School. Her family borrowed for her college tuition. She attended University of Nebraska in Lincoln where she was a regular contributor to the Nebraska State Journal. After graduating from college, she was a high school English teacher and writer at Home Monthly in Pittsburgh. In 1906, she joined the editorial staff of McClure's Magazine in New York City. In 1908, she was promoted to managing editor. She co-authored a biography of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science. In 1907-8, McClure's serialized the biography. It was published the next year as a book. In 1912, McClure's Magazine serialized her first novel, Alexander's Bridge. From 1913 to 1927, Cather lived with editor Edith Lewis in Greenwich Village. In 1923, she received the Pulitzer Prize for literature for her novel One of Ours (1922). The inspiration for the book came from reading her cousin G.P. Cather's wartime letters. G.P. Cather was the first officer from Nebraska killed in World War I. She continued writing books through 1940. She is best known for her "prairie trilogy," O Pioneers! (1913), The Song of the Lark (1915), and My Ántonia (1918).

Sinclair Lewis stated that Willa Cather should have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature instead of him.
