World's Best Reading is a series of classic books published by Readers Digest beginning in 1989. This edition contains the complete text of the original volume published in 1913.

By placing a strong, self-reliant woman at the centre, Cather gives the quintessentially American novel of the soil a radical cast.  Although influenced by the democratic utopianism of Walt Whitman and the serene regionalism of Sarah Orne Jewett, this volume is not merely an elegy for the lost glories of America's pioneer past.  It testifies to the cultural politics of the Progressive Era that helped to modernize the United States in the years between the Civil War and World War.
