Read Willa Cather’s three great novels of pioneer women from the prairies making their way in the world, struggling for love, careers, and independence.


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

“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

THE SONG OF THE LARK is a beautifully written tale of Thea Kronborg, a prairie girl who becomes an opera star
“I loved both O, Pioneers! and My Ántonia, the two other novels that make up her “Prairie Trilogy”, but I think The Song of the Lark might be my favourite of the three. Cather’s honest and passionate treatment of artistic devotion is both fascinating and humbling, a reminder of the author’s own life as this is generally described as her most autobiographical novel.” The Captive Reader

MY ÁNTONIA is about ‘the bold, beautiful Bohemian girl, ‘Tony’ Shimerda, whose resilience and strength symbolises the pioneer spirit.’

"No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as 'My Antonia’” H.L Mencken
