Book on the Road! Willa Cather, "O Pioneers!"

May 1, 2007

I took Willa Cather on my trip to Boston because I have found her calming to read and engaging as hell.

O Pioneers! was even more fun than My Antonia. I was struck by how much plot there was, and the descriptions of the landscape made the plains states more tolerable as I drove through them. If only Cather had written even more novels. I’d read them all.

Rating: ****1/2 (out of 5)

    I just finished reading this book, and found your review through librarything. I think ‘calming’ sums it for me as well.
