Category:  Fiction

Overview: Cather looks at the settling of the American West through the eyes of one family.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “On the one hand, a simple story about a woman running a farm.  On the other, a complex tale of relationships, friendships, and family.  I love this book.”

Ethan: “Cather’s account of life on the American prairie appeals to anyone interested in literature, history, or gender studies. It comes across almost like a more mature version of Little House on The Prairie.

Deborah:  “This classic novel with its vivid imagery and descriptions transported me to the pioneer period. I could feel the work ethic that Alexandra Bergson possessed and it reminded me of how some people are born with the character and values that let them embrace hard work.”
