ABOUT THE BOOK

Willa Cather was a Pulitzer Prize winning American author who is best known for her novels O Pioneers and My Antonia. Her vivid accounts of the experiences of immigrants as they survived the daily struggles of life on the Great Plains of the United States are recognized throughout the world.

A prolific writer, Cather's body of work includes twelve novels and several volumes of poetry, all of which won a great deal of acclaim by literary critics and her peers. Some say that her novel A Lost Lady greatly influenced F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Cathers strong personality as well as her great talent makes her personal life story as intriguing as her work.

Cather succeeded as a writer in a time when women were rarely seen working outside the home, and few women, if any, were respected for their intellects. Cather drew inspiration for her writing from the people she met throughout her childhood in Nebraska. Her richly drawn characters were inspired by the hard-working immigrants she knew in her early days. Cathers insights into the words of the real people eking out their existence on the plains of Nebraska have inspired American readers for decades.
