Everything you need to understand or teach O Pioneers! by Willa Cather.
Alexandra, a tall, strong girl of twenty and her five-year-old brother Emil live on a farm. They are in the small town of Hanover, Nebraska, one blustery winter day. Alexandra has seen a doctor who says there is no hope for their father. Emil's kitten gets stuck up a tree and a teenage boy named Carl Linstrum gets him down. They amuse themselves by watching a beautiful little Bohemian girl named Marie.
