This volume contains four great works (O Pioneers!, The Song of the Lark, My Antonia, and One of Ours) by the author who created the first autonomous and successful women's heroes in American literature. Willa Cather is one of America's most treasured writers. Her childhood in the woodlands of Virginia and on the prairies of Nebraska formed the inspiration for many of her novels, and her devotion to education provided the basis for her lifetime of achievement. Many critics have stated that Cather might have won a Nobel Prize had she not been a woman in a time of gender inequality."The time will come when she'll be ranked above Hemingway." Leon Edel"The thing about Willa Cather's landscape and figures is that not only were they born alive but remain so after six decades." GuardianThe Song of the Lark (1915): "A story of something better than suggestiveness and charm a thing finished, sound, and noble." The NationMy ntonia (1918): "No romantic novel ever written in America . . . is half so beautiful as My Antonia." H. L. Mencken
