Review

"The unity of Miss Cather's design, the clarity and distinction of this book, should put it beside her first great success, My Antonia." --The Times Literary Supplement (London) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Willa Cather was born on December 7, 1873, in Back Creek Valley, Virginia. Her father was a sheep farmer. When she was nine the family moved to Nebraska, eventually settling in the frontier village of Red Cloud. As a child Cather read voraciously, learning Greek and Latin from a neighbor, and displayed an early interest in science. At the University of Nebraska she immersed herself in literary studies and began writing stories and essays; following her graduation in 1895 she worked for some years as a journalist and schoolteacher, living part of the time in Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C.
