Overview

One of Ours (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) by Willa Cather

In the post World War I era, Willa Cather's story of a Nebraska farmer's idealized departure to defend France met a mixed reception. By then, the romance had been taken out of the war, and Claude Wheeler's willingness to fight and die in a foreign country for ideals he can barely articulate created a cultural controversy. Ultimately, One of Ours won the Pulitzer Prize in 1922.

About the Author

Born in Virginia, Willa Cather (1873-1948) moved with her family to Nebraska before she was ten, which later provided the setting for her best-known novels. The books O Pioneers! and My Antonia, especially, with their focus on immigrant life on the prairie, established Cather as a major American novelist.

Loved this book set in WW I. Willa Cather had an amazing way of capturing the heart and the poingancy of prairie life.
