O Pioneers! is the first novel of Willa Cather’s Great Plains trilogy, followed by The Song of the Lark (1915) and My Ántonia (1918). It tells the story of the Bergsons, a family of Swedish-American immigrants in the farm country near the fictional town of Hanover, Nebraska, at the turn of the 20th century. The main character, Alexandra Bergson, inherits the family farmland when her father dies, and she devotes her life to making the farm a viable enterprise at a time when many other immigrant families are giving up and leaving the prairie.
