Book Description:
In Willa Cather's own estimation, My Antonia, first published in 1918, was 'the best thing I've ever done.' An enduring paperback bestseller on Houghton Mifflin's literary list, this hauntingly eloquent classic now boasts a new foreword by Kathleen Norris, Cather's soulmate of the plains. Infused with a gracious passion for the land, My Antonia embraces its uncommon subject the hardscrabble life of the pioneer woman on the prairie with poetic certitude, rendering a deeply moving portrait of an entire community. Through Jim Burden's endearing, smitten voice, we revisit the remarkable vicissitudes of immigrant life in the Nebraska heartland with all its insistent bonds. Guiding the way are some of literature's most beguiling characters: the Russian brothers plagued by memories of a fateful sleigh ride, Antonia's desperately homesick father and self indulgent mother, and the coy Lena Lingard. Holding the pastoral society's heart, of course, is the bewitching, free spirited Antonia Shimerda.
