Description

This powerful early Cather novel, a landmark of American fiction, tells the story of the young Alexandra Bergson, whose dying father leaves her in charge of the family and of the Nebraska lands they have struggled to farm. In Alexandra's lifelong fight to survive and succeed, Cather relates an important chapter in the history of the American frontier, evoking the harsh grandeur of the prairie, and comparing with keen insight the experiences of Swedish, French and Bohemian immigrants in the United States.

Professional reviews

"Talented narrator Barbara McCulloh uses her highly trained and experienced vocal abilities to capture the biting cold of the Nebraska flatlands and the tough but gentle people who choose to work the land there. She uses plaintive pauses and firm emphasis to paint pictures with words describing the charactersÕ struggles to thrive as they battle the elements. McCulloh adopts a measured pace and employs her extraordinary ability to evoke deep emotion in listeners as she leads them through the stark landscapes. R.O. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
