O Pioneers! (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
This is the first novel in which Cather celebrates the land and the people who came to it as pioneers. In its central figure, Alexandra, Cather also recognizes a different kind of pioneer. When Alexandra's father dies, he leaves her to be responsible for her younger brothers and to develop the land. She greets this not as a burden but an opportunity, and succeeds, acquiring more land and farming it profitably.
