    Willa Cather has long been admired for O Pioneers! (1913), Song of the Lark (1915), and My Ántonia (1918), the so-called "prairie novels" that launched her career; but the author's admirers have struggled to explain how a writer growing up in a small town in Nebraska in the late nineteenth century could have transformed what she remembered into literary greatness. A century later, scholars acknowledge Cather's place in the canon of American literature and continue to explore her relationship with the West, while often remaining puzzled by, even suspicious of, the author's Nebraskan roots. How could Cather's deep attachment to the region produce such impressive fiction? Drawing on original archival research and paying unprecedented attention to the author's early short stories, Daryl W. Palmer offers a ground-breaking account of Cather's evolution as a writer, demonstrating that her relationship with Nebraska in the years leading up to O Pioneers! is more dynamic than critics and scholars have supposed.
