The moving story of one woman’s struggles and triumphs on the Nebraska frontier
In the breathtaking final volume of her acclaimed Prairie Trilogy, Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Willa Cather brings to life one of the most remarkable heroines in American literature.
The eldest daughter of Bohemian emigrants, fourteen-year-old Ántonia Shimerda arrives in Black Hawk, Nebraska, blissfully unaware of the poverty and heartbreak that lie in store for her family. But as one calamity after another befalls the Shimerdas, Ántonia finds the strength not merely to survive, but to thrive. Under the watchful eye of Jim Burden, her neighbor and childhood friend, Ántonia blossoms into a woman as beautiful, captivating, and resilient as the Great Plains.
Told in lush and evocative prose, My Ántonia is a masterpiece of twentieth-century literature and a stirring tribute to the homesteaders whose pioneer spirit tamed the American West.
My Ántonia is the 3rd book in the Prairie Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
Praise for Willa Cather
“[Cather] is undoubtedly one of the twentieth century’s greatest American writers.” —The Observer
“The time will come when [Cather] will be ranked above Hemingway.” —Leon Edel
“The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us.” —Rebecca West on Death Comes for the Archbishop
Willa Cather (1873–1947) was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed American authors of the early twentieth century. Born in Virginia, she moved with her family to the frontier town of Red Cloud, Nebraska, at the age of nine, an experience that profoundly affected her literary career. Her Prairie Trilogy—O Pioneers!, The Song of the Lark, and My Ántonia—is considered one of the finest achievements in American letters, and in 1922 she won the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, her novel on World War I.
