Overview

O pioneers! by Willa Cather

Alexandra Bergson, the daughter of Swedish immigrants, takes over the family farm after her father's death and falls under the spell of the rich, forbidding Nebraska prairie. Strong and resolute, she turns the wild landscape into orderly fields.

Born of Willa Cather's early ties to the prairie and the immigrants who tamed it, O Pioneers! established new territory in American literature. In her transformation of ordinary Americans into authentic literary characters, Cather discovered her own voice.

This book is very interesting in it's own way plus some sad parts and true love too. Also being smart and independ will be successful sometimes.

A good book though ends sad and does not have much of a point to me. It moves very quickly but I enjoyed it.

This is free and the book is great, but this copy of it is not edited. Great book, bad copy.

It was an okay book, but I didn't like the ending at all. I also didn't understand the authors thinking. I'm glad I didn't pay more than a dollar for it.

This was a wonderful story about a strong pioneering woman. Well written story focused on the main character growning up in the frontier. Nicely done classic.
