A soulful and rich portrait of a pioneer woman’s simple yet heroic life, My Ántonia is the story of the spirited daughter of Bohemian immigrants, Ántonia, who adapts 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 immigrants helped forge the communities that formed a nation, My Ántonia is also a hauntingly eloquent celebration of the strength, courage, and spirit of America’s early pioneers.
