O Pioneers!

Willa Cather

Cather's heroine, Alexandra Bergson, would, in fact, become the model for the pioneer women of later literature. Spirited, courageous, and independent, the daughter of Swedish immigrants, Alexandra assumes responsibility for the family farm—and her family—upon the death of her father. Her devotion to the harsh, forbidding prairie transforms her land and her life.
