Willa Cather

Willa Cather (1873-1947) was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed American authors of the early twentieth century. Born in Virginia, she moved with her family to the Nebraskan frontier as a child, and that experience profoundly affected her writing. In 1922, she won the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, her novel about World War I, but she is best known for her novels about life on the Great Plains, including O Pioneers! and My √Āntonia.
