Publisher Description

Alexandra Bergson inherits the family farm after her father's death. Scorched by wind and sun, Alexandra spends most of her young life making the land financially stable and successful. As the years pass, Alexandra begins to realize how much she has sacrificed to help the farm thrive. And as her neighboring settlers pack and leave, the prairie begins to look less like a land of opportunity and more like a wasteland. Cather's novel is a highly influential masterpiece that explores feminism, realism, isolation, forbidden romance, and regret.

Cather

There is a softness of style here that draws you in and holds you fast. This is a great one.

O Pioneers!

Beautifully written bittersweet tale of early Swedish, "Bohemian" and French settlers of the upper Midwest. Classic Cather. Reminds me of a Greek play.
