Five Stories

PDF EBook by Willa Cather

EBook Description

This was my first Willa Cather book. Five Stories PDF EBookI can see why hers are often selectioned for high school student required reading.Her writing is not complicated and easy to understand.Her descriptions of the land are exquisite.I read the Five Stories because of the additional unfinished story about Avignon, France.Much to my chagrin, the story was actually about how Willa loved Avignon, wanted to write a story about it but since it was unfinished at the time of her death, she requested it be destroyed.So no Avignon story.The other five stories were varied.One was about kids at a swimming hole, another about a family of farmers in Nebraska, another about cowboys on a New Mexico mesa, another was about a teacher in a small town and one was about a boy in the city.Oddly, with the exception of the swimming hole, one of the lead characters dies in every story.That's not to say that all of the stories are depressing or about death.Just the opposite actually.Many of the lead characters, at some point, get to do what they always wanted to do.Because I enjoy her story telling and her writing style, I think I may pick up another one of her books in the future.
