Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captures the Immigrant Experience Cather's novel of rural life in Nebraska in the early 20th century depicts the struggles of the Shimerda family and the distinct obstacles they face as immigrants and outsiders. This is essential reading for anyone interested in what it feels like as an "other" trying to find an identity in a new country and a new home.
