In this powerful and astonishing novel, Willa Cather created one of the most winning yet thoroughly convincing heroines in American fiction. Antonia Shimerda, the daughter of Bohemian immigrants, not only survives her father's suicide, poverty, and a failed romance, she triumphs with high spirits.
"No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as My Antonia."—H.L. Mencken
