Willa Cather

O Pioneers

The first of her renowned prairie novels--a story that expresses Cather's conviction that «the history of every country begins in the heart of a man or a woman.» When Alexandra Bergson takes over the family farm after her father's death, she falls under the spell of the rich, forbidding Nebraska prairie.

    "And now the old story has begun to write itself over there," said Carl softly. "Isn't it queer: there are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes over for thousands of years."
  • Michelle AMhas quoted3 years ago
    A pioneer should have imagination, should be able to enjoy the idea of things more than the things themselves.
