Claude Wheeler, the sensitive, aspiring protagonist of this beautifully written Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, resembles the youngest son of a peculiarly American fairy tale. His fortune is ready-made for him, but he refuses to settle for it. Alienated from his parents, all but rejected by his wife, and dissatisfied with farming, Claude is an idealist without an ideal to cling to. It's only when America enters the First World War that Claude finds the purpose he has searched for. One of Ours is divided into two parts: the first half is set in Nebraska where Claude struggles to find his life's purpose; the second part, during World War I where he ironically fulfills his romantic idealism on the brutal battlefields of 1918 France. It is the story of a young man born after the American frontier has vanished, yet whose quintessentially American restlessness seeks redemption on a frontier far bloodier.… (més)

Even though it's been a few years since I read this book, I still remember it. The pictures in my mind are still bright. Some very poignant scenes and quite a story. ( )

A sweeping story about coming-of-age, purpose, and the changes to a war-torn society. ( )

Loved a few other Cather books years ago, so jumped on this one at an AAUW used book sale several years back. It's languished on my shelf since then. Finally read it last week. Meh! It was a struggle to finish but I did. ONE OF OURS is a drab tale of Claude Wheeler, a sensitive, well-off Nebraska farm boy, (perhaps too well loved by his doting mother) who marries the wrong woman, endures a loveless marriage and an uninteresting life for a couple years. Then his wife goes off to China to care for her sick missionary sister, and Claude joins the Army to fight in the First World War in France, where he distinguishes himself, sees more of the world and makes a few good friends. The ending is sadly predictable and even a bit sappy in its sentimentality. While the writing was, I must admit, classic Cather, the story just did not work for me. Sorry, Willa. It was "just okay" for me, and I wouldn't recommend it. Try OH, PIONEERS or MY ANTONIA instead.

I love Willa Cather's stories built around the lives of folks on the prairie some century or more ago. This is another of those, mostly. It involves a young man, Claude, who grows up on a farm in western Nebraska. He feels that he doesn't fit in, for some reason he can't really articulate, and keeps searching for something more in life. He goes to college in Lincoln for a while, but his parents stop that nonsense when they realize he has academic aspirations, e.g. history, and their only reason for sending him was in case he might decide to be a preacher. So, he has to go back to make a life for himself on the farm.

His family gets quite interested in the reports of the doings in Europe regarding the beginning of World War I. After a few years, Claude sees a chance to try something different and enlists in the army. The last bit of the book describes his life in the army in France.

It's a good story. Cather doesn't go in for cheap melodrama. She just provides a calm recital of people's lives and explores their thoughts and feelings as they live those lives. She is truly a gem. I have no idea why I was put off by the idea of Cather in high school (probably my older sister's fault), despite never actually having had to read her. It's rather sad that I had to wait until I began bordering on dotage before I discovered this wonderful author. Then again, I also didn't really discover Dickens until I was approaching my dotage (and let's not forget Charlie Chan). I guess better late than never, huh? ( )
