Willa Cather’s youth was a mix of East Coast comfort and rugged pioneering.  She collected stories from the adults in her life, from people who had formerly been enslaved and from Eastern European immigrants.  Determined to forge an independent life for herself, she used her way with words and these tales to become one of America’s greatest and most beloved authors.
