“On the Divide” by Willa Cather

 


So instead of becoming a friend and a neighbor to the men who settled about him, Canute become a mystery and a terror.

This tale penned in 1896 was selected as one of the 100 Best Western Short Stories by the fine editor, Jon E. Lewis.

I must say I agree whole-heartedly with Mr. Lewis on this one.

Truthful, heartfelt, and written with a feel for the loneliness of settlement that the author herself had firsthand experience with.

On the money as few mere plot driven tales can ever be.

Topnotch humanity.
