The Divide

The Divide

In "The Enchanted Bluff" Cather speaks of the "windy plain that was all windmills and cornfields and big pastures." In O Pioneers! she mentions the furrows that "often lie a mile in length" and the  joyous, young "open face of the country." This is The Divide, so called because that high tableland marks the division between two watersheds: water to the south flows into the Republican River, while water to the north flows into the Little Blue River.
