Description
"No romantic novel ever written in America, by man or woman, is one half so beautiful as My Ántonia," said H.L. Mencken of this heartfelt novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Willa Cather, one of eight classic American novels featured in the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read initiative. It is the story of an immigrant woman's life on the hardscrabble Nebraska plains, told through Jim Burden's affectionate reminiscence of his childhood friend, the free-spirited Ántonia Shimerda. "I had known so many women who have kept all the things that she had lost, but whose inner glow has faded," remembers Jim. "Whatever else was gone, Ántonia had not lost the fire of life." This edition includes Cather's original 1918 introduction and a foreword by Kathleen Norris.
