So love the photo of Willa Cather's Girlhood Room on the calendar for October, and of course, how fitting what with the 99th anniversary of the Song of the Lark publication on October 2nd.

Oggetto: Re: [5BANKSTREET] Cather/Trees

Hi Catherites,

For what it's worth, my Cather/Trees Concordance Blog, packed with human error, is finished.  I thought I'd share some observations from it.  In her novels, Cather refers to over 50 species of trees with the cottonwood (no surprise there) mentioned most.  The  novel with the most tree references is Death Comes for the Archbishop.  The one with the least, My Mortal Enemy.  Below is a list of the novels with the number of tree references and the tree referenced most in each novel.

This has been an enjoyable labor of love for me, and my hope is that some out there in their Cather studies may find it and make use of it.

If any of you see how this study can take another step of some sort, I'd most certainly leap at the chance to be involved.

Thanks for the support along the way.

--Jim

PS:  I plan to work on organizing it better, i.e. through alphabetization of pages, sections by novels, trees, etc.
