Few events had as much impact on the life of young Willa Cather than her move from a lavish Virginia home to the endless prairies of Nebraska. A profound influence on the developing writer's style and storytelling, the creativity afforded to Cather by that fateful move fueled such acclaimed works as My Antonia and the Pulitzer Prize-winning One of Ours. Now literature fans can explore the background of the inspirational female author in a detailed documentary exploring both the influences and works of a writer whose frequent surges in popularity give knowing testament to the power of her words.
