Catholic contributions to American Regionalism (1920-1945)

Jeremy Bonner's picture

I am in search of Catholic writers from the 1920s and 1930s whose treatment of rural German-American Catholic settings is analogous to Willa Cather's My Antonia or Ole Rolvaag's Giants in the Earth. I have recently become aware of Herbert Krause's Wind Without Rain, which speaks to a German-American context, but a Lutheran rather than a Catholic one. Have list members any suggestions?
