Willa Cather's novels have been among my favorites, but I am less familiar with her short stories. I found this book at the Oakland Public Library and read the stories from her collections "The Troll Garden" and "The Bohemian Girl."
These stories are early efforts in Cather's career, and the quality is uneven. Her more memorable stories were written when she began mining her firsthand knowledge of the Midwest pioneers, particularly in Nebraska where she grew up.
I enjoyed "A Death in the Desert

Recommends it for: people who enjoy short stories that show the personal and social background of the characters
I know the writing is "old fashioned" in this collection of short stories, but the sheer volume-- 543 pages--of intricate and very personal worlds Cather creates for each story, earns 5 stars from me. This particular volume includes an appendix of pseudonymous stories, notes on the editing, a chronology of Cather's life, and bibliographies of her (prolific) works.
