Overview

My Ántonia (first published 1918) is considered the greatest novel by American writer Willa Cather. My Ántonia — pronounced with the accent on the first syllable of "Ántonia" — is the final book of the "prairie trilogy" of novels by Cather, a list that also includes 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.

I have read Cather's short stories and wanted to experience her novels. She has such a nice way of bringing history and the time period to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It has no agenda, it is just a lovely story of friendship through life's difficulties.
