“In all of American literature no one better captured the struggle of settlers on the Great Plains than Willa Cather in ’O Pioneers!’” New York Times

”Rather, it is about pushing the envelope, about living life the way you want to live it without worrying about social decorum, about love.”

“I found Cather’s depiction of Alexandra powerful and inspiring; she is a true heroine of American literature.” Book Snob

“Soft, light, fluent, black. Also tough - Cather in this book writes as much about human stoicism as about human passion.” A. S. Byatt

“The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world almost as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us.” Rebecca West

O PIONEERS! is the story of the life and loves of Alexandra Bergson and her struggle to save the family farm in the harsh conditions of turn of the century Nebraska.

It is Willa Cather’s first masterpiece, presented here in a beautiful edition with period photos of pioneer farming families. It is the first novel of her Great Plains trilogy which includes ‘My Ántonia’ and ‘Song of the Lark’
