Season 19, Episode 7 Willa Cather: The Road Is All

First Aired: September 7, 2005

“Willa Cather: The Road Is All” profiles the prairie-hewn author of such frontier classics as “O Pioneers!” and “My Antonia.” David Strathairn narrates the biography, which teases out the character of the guarded Cather (1873-1947) mostly by analyzing her novels (with excerpts read by Marcia Gay Harden). “Cather felt that her life belonged to her,” says writer Joan Acocella, “and her work belonged to the people.”
