This book was suggested for my book club. I had never read Cather and loved the story and lyricism of her writing. An homage to Nebraska and the women who were a large part of her heritage. Should definitely be included in the list of great American literature .

A tale that moves you along at a time of open eated, horse drawn wagons and early emigrant settlers. Narrated by Cather's Jim Burden, the characters are silvered as the photos of the time, but come so alive they are friends by the story's end.Antonia has the pull of an older girl on a younger boy and he is faithful to her memory clear into manhood. Is his feeling for her why he never marries? He will hang out, hunthunt and camp with her almost grown sons the way other did with him, and the circle of life goes on ...Jim and his Antonia will stay in my heart, as if we had grown up together.

This was a reread for me and I loved it even more the second time around. Such vivid descriptions of farm life that it left me both exhausted and craving that way of life.
