Votre note
Alexandra Bergson is the eldest child of a Swedish immigrant family, newly arrived to the untamed landscape of the American West. Home for them is the desolate stretch of plains known as the Divide. When Alexandra's father dies, it is she who becomes the head of the family and struggles to soften the wild, overgrown soil to make it a prosperous farm. But this success is darkened by loss, and Alexandra's devotion to the land may come at the cost of love itself...

Biographie de Willa Cather

Born in 1873 to a family who had farmed in Virginia for generations, Willa Cather moved to her father's new ranch in Nebraska when she was eight. The raw frontier territories and the pioneer life of the Old West were to awaken her imagination and furnish the atmosphere for much of her later work. After graduating from the University of Nebraska, Willa Cather became a teacher and a journalist. In 1912 she abandoned journalism to write full time.
Her first novel was Alexander's Bridge (1912), though she had already published a volume of poems and another of short stories. Her vivid evocations of the pioneering West, and her impassioned and thoughtful explorations of the ancient worlds of America, soon established her reputation as one of America's foremost writers. Willa Cather died in New York in 1947.
