Willa Cather's life was a true American success story. A pioneer and determined spirit, Willa didn't let anything stand in her way. She refused to be discouraged by the fact that in the 1880's women hadn't written before, because she had many ideas to share. By becoming a trailblazer and following her heart, Willa Cather is remembered today as one of the greatest American writers in history.
