About the Book

One Of Ours is a book written by Willa Cather, who later received the 1923 Pulitzer Prize. In One of Ours, Cather brings World War I to the heartland of Nebraska and sensitively guides the reader through the highs and lows experienced by a young man who is already enjoying what are perhaps his life's greatest triumphs. But, One of Ours is not a tale of battle. Instead, it's just another excellent examination of the most fundamental aspirations, phobias, and concerns of travelers. This is an emotional tale of purposelessness and human restlessness. At the turn of the century, Claude Wheeler was born in Nebraska to a wealthy agricultural family. Claude, who is unsatisfied with his job and his wife, finds fulfillment while serving in France during World War I. How will Claude survive during the War? What will happen to Claude's family? To read this amazing collection of ideas based on sacrifices and life, readers should go through the book!
