Publisher's Summary

This is One of Ours, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Willa Cather, America’s greatest writer of the prairie heartland. It is set in rural Nebraska in the early 20th century prior to the first World War that enveloped Europe and eventually the United States. 

The story focuses on the young Claude Wheeler, a well-to-do farmer’s son who secretly longs for something to take him away from the hum-drum agrarian life he has inherited. As he prepares to take over his family’s farm business, war intrudes and Claude is thrust into the harsh realities of the death and destruction of clashing armies. 

Brilliantly and evocatively written, with a firm grasp of the tenor of those perilous times, Cather breathes life into her characters and the Midwest that was her home.

One of Ours ---- Over There

One of Ours
: Willa Cather

Thi is a 1923 Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Unlike, most reviews I have seen: I have not read and or listened to other works by this author.

"One of Ours" begins in Nebraska where Claude is growing and learning this isn't the life he wants. After a long meandering trip throughout his experiences WWI has begun and Claude is ready to go. Most of the second half of the book shows an unrealistic ways of war, but what do I know? The listener will have to judge for themselves.


The narration was well done. Louis B. Jack's voice is a great compliment to the novel.
