about this book

On one level, My Antonia is a straightforward narrative, written in limpid prose of uncanny descriptive accuracy, about the struggles endured by a family of immigrant pioneers and the small community that surrounds them on the unsettled Nebraska plains. On another, it is a novel that represents a perfect marriage of form and feeling. In its magnificent tableaux of human beings caught in the toils of an abundant and overpowering natural world, and in the quiet, understated sympathy it displays for life of every sort, My Antonia is a novel that effortlessly encompasses history and wilderness, even as it portrays a woman whose robust spirit and enduring warmth make her emblematic of what Cather most admired in the American people.
