Book summary

O Pioneers! was Willa Cather's first important novel. Published in 1913, it introduced the Bohemian and Swedish immigrants of the Nebraska Prairies to readers of serious literature. Alexandra Bergson assumes responsibility for running the family farm after her father's death. She possesses the strength of the pioneers that the author knew in her midwestern youth. Writing O Pioneers! was for Cather "like taking a ride through a familiar country on a horse that knew the way."
