Willa Cather
Willa Cather
When she was nine, Willa Cather {1873-1947} and her family moved from Virginia to the plains of Nebraska, where the landscape and colorful immigrant population fired her creativity. Many of Cather's works - including the novels O Pioneers! {1913} and My Ántonia {1918} - are notable for their unique and passionate portraits of people and life on the quickly fading American frontier. Cather was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1923 for the novel One of Ours.
