Her exposure to the region's dramatic environment and intrinsic hardships along with its diverse population of European-Americans, Native Americans, and immigrants shaped and informed much of her fiction.A novelist and short-story writer, Willa Cather is today widely regarded as one of the foremost American authors of the twentieth century. Particularly renowned for the memorable women she created for such works as My Antonia and O Pioneers!, she pens the portrait of another formidable character in The Song of the Lark.
