"The Song of the Lark," by Willa Cather

a passage from native to master explorer

There is so much to say about this book that I must sum it all by saying only that it is magnificent. If you love explorers and their lives this story of the development of a country girl into a great singer may carry meaning for you. It is more than the story of an individual; it is the story of a river of civilization that carries her to the shores of the world's oceans. -leif
