My Antonia, Paperback / softback Book

My Antonia Paperback / softback

Part of the Collins Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. My Antonia is Willa Cather's masterpiece about 19th-century Nebraskan pioneers. My Antonia depicts the pioneering period of European settlement on the tall-grass prairie of the American midwest, with its beautiful yet terrifying landscape, rich ethnic mix of immigrants and native-born Americans, and communities who share life's joys and sorrows. Jim Burden recounts his memories of Antonia Shimerda, whose family settle in Nebraska from Bohemia.

Together they share childhoods spent in a new world.

Jim leaves the prairie for college and a career in the east, while Antonia devotes herself to her large family and productive farm.

Her story is that of the land itself, a moving portrait of endurance and strength.
