Ms. Willa Cather, author, was born today. She was an original voice in American literature, celebrating the strength of purpose of the settlers of the prairies.

These women and men she commemorated were  people providing for themselves and their families through honest effort. In difficult circumstances.

Ms. Cather wrote “My Antonia”, “Song of the Lark”, “Death Comes for the Archbishop”, and “O Pioneers!”, among others. She celebrated grit. The Rhino idea of a Big Virtue.
