O Pioneers! and Other Tales of the Prairie
Although Willa Cather, one of the premier writers of the American West, lived most of her adult life in New York City, she never forgot and never stopped loving the "sea of grass", the open, untamed country of her youth. Gathered together in this unique collection are the novel O Pioneers! -- Cather's famous double elegy to the land and to the pioneer spirit -- and two of her fine shorter pieces, "A Lost Lady" and "The Bohemian Girl". The volume is evocatively illustrated with portraits of Cather and a selection of photographs and drawings that capture the grandeur of the western frontier.
