A 7-foot bronze statue of writer Willa Cather is now on display at the US Capitol, one of two statues representing Nebraska in the National Statuary Hall collection. We see the dramatic unveiling, speak with sculptor Littleton Alston, who created the work, and explore Cather’s long journey from a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who created a new vision of the American frontier to a towering statue on display for the world to see at the US Capitol.
