Willa Cather (nee Wilella Sibert Cather) was born in 1873 near Winchester, Virginia. She moved with her family to Catherton, Nebraska in 1883, and the landscape went on to have a formative effect on her, with her most famous novels being set on Nebraskan soil. Before becoming a full-time writer, Cather worked variously as a journalist, a magazine editor and a teacher. Her first novel, Alexander?s Bridge, was published in 1912, followed by titles including O Pioneers! (1913); The Song of the Lark (1915); My ntonia (1918); One of Ours (1922), for which she won the Pulitzer Prize; Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927) and Sapphira and the Slave Girl (1940). She died at her home in New York in 1947.
