The Prairie Trilogy: O Pioneers!; The Song of the Lark; My Antoniá
From the publisher: "The Prairie Trilogy is Pulitzer prize-winning author Willa Cather's highly acclaimed series of novels that deal with the ordinary everyday lives of Americans in plainspoken language. O Pioneers! is a powerful early Cather novel that tells the compelling tale of a young girl with the tough task of taking care of her frontier family after their father's death. The Song of the Lark is the self-portrait of an artist in the making. It revolves around the fascinating story of a young girl who heads to the big city in search of the American dream. My Antoniá is one of Cather's earliest novels. It tells the moving story of immigrant pioneers whose persistence and strength helped to build America. Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers, the novels are some of the great works of American literature and continue to be widely read and studied throughout the world."
