Friday Mystery Author: Willa Cather

The most recent Friday Mystery Author is revealed: novelist of the American plains, Willa Cather. This week’s passage was from My Antonia, which breathes the very scent of the big bluestem.

July came on with that breathless, brilliant heat which makes the plains of Kansas and Nebraska the best corn country in the world. It seemed as if we could hear the corn growing in the night; under the stars on cought a faint crackling in the dewy, heavy-odoured cornfields where the feathered stalks stood so juicy and green.

Check back on Friday for the next edition of Friday Mystery Author.
