Cather’s heroine, Alexandra Bergson, would, in fact, become the model for the pioneer women of later literature.

Spirited, courageous, and independent, the daughter of Swedish immigrants, Alexandra assumes responsibility for the family farm—and her family—upon the death of her father. Her devotion to the harsh, forbidding prairie transforms her land and her life.

    " An interesting book with feminist themes printed in a time when feminism was not an accepted mainstream ideology. Willa Cather was definitely before her time and I appreciate her for it! "

    " Vaguely: Little House on the Prairie, but sped up with a super depressing ending. "

    " This was our book club book. I really liked it, and am embarrassed that I'd never read it yet. I think I will read all Willa Cather's books now. It's a short book, I thought I might find it dry and a little slow, but it was not. It was more tragic than I thought it would be, but then, we're talking about Svedes from da olde country, so what could I expect? "
