General Note
"Notes from the editors" (22 p.) in pocket.
No romantic novel ever written in America ... is one half so beautiful as My Ántonia. H.L. Mencken.
Widely recognized as Willa Cathers greatest novel, My Ántonia is a soulful and rich portrait of a pioneer womans simple yet heroic life. The spirited daughter of Bohemian immigrants, Ántonia must adapt to a hard existence on the desolate prairies of the Midwest. Enduring childhood poverty, teenage seduction, and family tragedy, she eventually becomes a wife and mother on a Nebraska farm. A fictional record of how women helped forge the communities that formed a nation, My Ántonia is also a hauntingly eloquent celebration of the strength, courage, and spirit of Americas early pioneers.
