O Pioneers!

O Pioneers!
by Willa Cather

Willa Cather, 1873-1947, has written several novels set in Nebraska. I might have read this earlier as I grew up here, but sometimes it's good to read or reread such classics. "O Pioneers!" reminds me just how difficult it was to live on this land, how life has its low moments and its high points. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try other Cather novels, or Bess Streeter Aldrich's pioneer novels.] -- recommended by Meredith M. - Heritage Room of Nebraska Authors

[O Pioneers! is available in a wide variety of formats and languages. This link (or the links above) should take you to ALL versions of this title in the libraries' collection.]
