about

My Ántonia, first published 1918, is one of Willa Cather's greatest works. It is the last novel in the Prairie trilogy, preceded by O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark. My Ántonia tells the stories of several immigrant families who move out to rural Nebraska to start new lives in America, with a particular focus on a Bohemian family, the Shimerdas, whose eldest daughter is named Ántonia. The book's narrator, Jim Burden, arrives in the fictional town of Black Hawk, Nebraska, on the same train as the Shimerdas, as he goes to live with his grandparents after his parents have died. Jim develops strong feelings for Ántonia, something between a crush and a filial bond, and the reader views Ántonia's life, including its attendant struggles and triumphs, through that lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captures the Immigrant Experience Cather's novel of rural life in Nebraska in the early 20th century depicts the struggles of the Shimerda family and the distinct obstacles they face as immigrants and outsiders. This is essential reading for anyone interested in what it feels like as an "other" trying to find an identity in a new country and a new home.
