Summary
100th Anniversary Edition"Miss Cather, indeed, here steps definitely into the small class of American novelists who are seriously to be reckoned with."—H. L. Mencken "To reread Cather is to rediscover an arresting chapter in the national past."—Los Angeles TimesFeisty Thea Kronborg, with her rapturous singing voice, is headed for great things. But her upbringing in a raw, provincial Colorado town has practically stifled her artistic ambitions. Only a few people in Moonstone recognize Thea's world-class talent. One of them is Ray Kennedy, who, entranced by Thea's voice, hopes to marry her, but is destined to unchain her. Sustained by determination and a pioneer's spirit, and inspired by the Native American culture that surrounded her in youth, Thea makes her way in the world. But with loneliness as her constant companion, she comes to realize what sacrifices a true artist must make....With an Introduction by Melissa Homestead
